Story of a promising high school basketball star and his relationships with two brothers, one a drug dealer and the other a former basketball star fallen on hard times and now employed as a security guard.
Youngsters from different countries, races, and social background are forced to integrate when they all enroll in Columbus University. They all have their own problems, such as finance, harrassment, personal safety, and self doubt. Additionally, campus life seems to be causing a problem for everyone: racism. Students, already under pressure to perform in the classroom, on the track, or in front of their friends, are strained to the breaking point by prejudice, inexperience, and misunderstanding.

The fictitious college of Columbus University where the film takes place was actually in south-central Los Angeles; production designer Keith Brian Burns turned some old dilapidated buildings into frat houses. See more »
Malik competes in track meets. The film takes place in the fall semester. Track in universities is a spring sport. See more »
This film is nonsense. i don't mean mild nonsense, or almost nonsense, or indeed just poor. Let's do a quick plot summary. Racists of both varieties have race war. Fantastic "liberal" coalition stand as symbols of good (lesbians, hippies etc) The only thing this film is good for is comedy. You haven't laughed until you've seen immensely stupid Nazis yell things like "Do it, do it for the white race!". Great stuff. A prime candidate for people who watch films for stupidity.
