Tough Coach Duke Goulding leaves nothing untried to lead his almost exclusively white boarding school basketball team, the Hawks, to victory after victory, but his own son Hugo feels his polyvalent technical excellence and tireless efforts -which require using stimulants- are not getting anything like the recognition he deserves, especially when coach gives the best player award to Odin James, the only black teammate, even saying he loves Odin like his own son, who in turn only calls super-rich Michael Cassio to share in the honor. So Hugo, who is liked by everyone, decides to set up the boys who stole his glory, and he knows a cocky adolescent's weak points are his pride and his girl. This Dixie Jago schemes to bring down a black Othello and his Cassio, playing into the poisonous power of jealousy, however badly this also hurts their loved ones and the whole team...Written by
Even if Hugo's plan all went as planned, and he succeeded in framing Michael for Desi's death, how does this get revenge on Odin? See more »
All my life I always wanted to fly. I always wanted to live like a hawk. I know you're not supposed to be jealous of anything, but... to take flight, to soar above everything and everyone, now that's living.

Wow, that was one crap-tastic movie. The script was trite, the actors were not entertaining, and I just had a bad feeling sitting through this movie. That was 8 bucks I could of spent on a piece of rope to hang myself... I'm sure it would of been more entertaining. It's a good thing Shakespeare is dead because if he wasn't he'd be p***ed off right now.
