A young man dreams of becoming the first one-arm college basketball player in history.
4 February 2013 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

A beautiful film. Opens the heart by showing Kevin Laue's struggle to become the first division one basketball player in college history. Follows Kevin in high school. But, film starts earlier with his relationship with his mentor AAU Coach, Pat McKnight. Kevin's relationship with his father, who died when he was ten is gently explored. His mother, a fixture in his life guides him through the tough years. Through success Kevin meets the President of the United States. He goes on to play at one of the top prep schools in the country, Fork Union. After a difficult year his dream is .... Don't want to spoil it. The how and where he achieves his goal will have to get you to see the film. Bravo for Kevin and the unique story-telling.
