An Oscar-winning documentary about Arthur Agee and William Gates, two teenagers from inner-city Chicago, whose future lies miles away in an affluent suburb of Illinois. During term time, the young men travel to St Joseph High School preparatory school in Westchester to play basketball under a legendary high school coach, who could be their ticket to NBA glory. Facing pressure on all sides because of their race and background, Arthur and William dribble around obstacles that life flings in their path.
