An inner-city kid with a heart for basketball is the only one willing to stand up to a fearsome group of local hoodlums. But he can't do it alone, and pays a dear price for his bravado. Now his only chance lies in a a frail hope that he might unite those like him, across oceans and ethnic boundaries, to ultimately return for a final climactic showdown on the court.

Fantastic
13 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I believe movies that are made to create positive changes in our lives are great movies, especially movies that create a message for our kids. It was a great movie with a real message, a true message. Who has not experienced that kind of treatment at any time in school growing up, that film should be shown at all schools nationally, kids would get the message no matter what age. The movie was also extremely well made, the top of professionalism. Freedom and and freedom to change is what this country is about. Freedom to be yourself, freedom to do what you consider to be right and freedom to change others on the idea of freedom in this world is just great! I loved that movie.
