Summary
Filmed over four years, from the dilapidated cement courts of Senegal to upscale American prep schools, documents the extraordinary personal journeys of four particularly tall West African Muslim teenage boys with NBA dreams. Recruited from the SEEDS Academy for both their physical and academic skills, Assane, Dethie, Byago and Aziz accept basketball scholarships to schools in the United States, and face the daunting challenges of alienation, a foreign language, and American-style basketball
