To some, sport is just a way of keeping fit and passing time - but to Ken Carter, it's a way to build a better a life. The successful owner of a local sporting goods shop, Carter offers to take over as the coach of the struggling basketball team at his old high school. But when the team start to do well, they find success on the court is only half the story. A hugely enjoyable film about growing up, dedication and staying true to yourself.
