A hell of a documentary by Director Nick Budabin telling a bittersweet saga about the basketball playing years of Keifer Sykes, who has the indomitable spirit of an African American Everyman, soaring on the courts as a pint-size wunderkind and off as a loving uncle, father and comrade as he pursues his dreams. This film is as much about life, especially life in Chicago, as it is about basketball.
AJ Green, a new kid in town, shows up at the varsity basketball tryouts for the new season and makes quite an impression, so much that some veterans feel threatened, especially the star of the team whose bullying can match his inflated ego. We know how teens can act immaturely. Is AJ up to the challenge?
