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.
