Storyline

A group of guys, born working-class around 1949, grow up friends playing basketball at the Second Street Park in Brooklyn. Through contemporary interviews and archival footage, they look back on their growing up. Teen camaraderie gives way to seeking personal fulfillment and, in the 1960s and 70s, drug use. As young adults, several make a trip across the U.S.; one finds happiness in rural, upstate New York. One fights in Vietnam. One is murdered in 1975, probably over drugs. A few become professionals. By 2000, at least two have lost a child, there's rue and regret, and there's the enjoyment of returning to the basketball court at the park for a reunion game. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Adored the film and the subjects
1 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was born in 1947, one of four daughters, and raised in the Midwest(northwest Wisconsin). This was so interesting and nostalgic. I have visited NYC three times, and have always wanted to live there. Each of the subjects was interesting and lovable. It was amazing to see how they received a formal education, despite limited resources, and how they still return to their wonderful childhood memories. I loved all of the interviews and file footage. I, too, chummed with friends who reminded me exactly of the people here. If I had lived there, I'm certain I would have been best friends with the guys and Madelyn. Please do an update on all of the individuals. Steve Satin touched my heart - he truly has been through hell and back and persevered. I LOVED ALL OF YOU. I have watched this four times.
