Storyline

While a rare few achieve professional success through basketball, for most players, the journey will end on the same neighborhood pickup court where it began, playing for pride, friendship, community and great love of the game. This surprising documentary vividly illuminates the heart, humor and brotherhood at one such court: Albany, New York's Washington Park, AKA "The Graveyard." What happens on this pickup court is only half the story. It's in the off-court lives of five Graveyard ballers that the heart of the film emerges. In their inspiring life stories, perseverance and purpose triumph over hardship, obstacles and bad choices. These are not perfect men, but their determination to make a positive impact in this world will not be denied. This uplifting film will challenge what you think you know about the men behind the chain link fence Written by anonymous
