This is not just another sports movie. It's a story about the many layers of love: mother and child, father and child, between siblings, between friends, the romantic love between a man a woman, and love for sport and trying to maintain and balance of all of these. Basketball is the back drop but the characters are the story. I can watch it everyday and will have a tear in my eye each time.
