A look at the personal journeys of four particularly tall West African Muslim teenagers who are recruited to play basketball in the United States both for their physical and academic skills. Assane, Dethie, Byago and Aziz accept basketball scholarships to schools in the United States, and are confronted with the daunting challenges of alienation, a foreign language, American-style basketball and an unfamiliar American culture rife with African stereotypes. Despite all these hurdles, they relentlessly pursue their dreams to obtain an education and a shot at the NBA. (Source)
