A “mystical understanding of the game” made Lloyd “Swee' Pea” Daniels a New York City basketball legend by the age of 16. Christened the “next Magic Johnson”, his career effectively ended at age 21 after being shot 3 times in the chest after a tussle over $8 of cocaine. The Legend of Swee’ Pea follows the twists and turns of fortune in the life of a basketball prodigy: his dramatic downfall, miraculous comeback, and, finally, the bittersweet confrontation with a life imperfectly lived.
SWEE’ PEA was an ‘Official Selection’ at DOC NYC, Big Sky Documentary Film Festival and Atlanta Film Festival. It also won ‘Best Documentary Film’ at New Hampshire Film Festival as well as numerous awards at various film festivals around the US.
