Love the story line, basketball could have been better
12 February 2018 | by macpharlanSee all my reviews

Fantastic story, I am a Mormon and lived right by Preston Idaho and I had never heard this story, so glad it was told.

I do wish they would have used some better basketball playing, would have made it even more enjoyable.
