Shot on location in Harlem, New York, Above the Rim follows Kyle, a promising young basketball player hoping to get a sports scholarship to university. He's seduced by the dubious glamour of the local team, run by the drug dealer Birdie (played by hip-hop legend Tupac Shakur), despite the objections of his mum and her friend Shep - an ex-pro basketball player now reduced to working as a security guard. Kyle must make his choices carefully to fulfil his full potential, in this thoughtful and engaging drama.
