Blind Ambition follows four friends who have beaten the odds to become South Africa's top sommeliers after escaping starvation and tyranny in their homeland of Zimbabwe. Driven by relentless optimism, a passion for their craft and a sense of national pride, they form Zimbabwe's first national wine tasting team and set their sights on winning the coveted top spot at the World Blind Wine Tasting Championships—the Olympics of wine tasting, held annually in France. This is a feel-good underdog story that draws inevitable comparisons to Cool Runnings; the friendly banter and easy camaraderie among the Zimbabwean team is a joy to watch. You don’t have to be a wine connoisseur to appreciate Blind Ambition’s uplifting message and playful charm.
