NYC PREMIERE Chicago’s Westside has its share of problems, but it’s also home to Orr Academy. There, young men like Marquise and Tyquone find refuge from the sometimes dangerous realities of the street on the school’s basketball team, under the watchful eye of their mentor and coach, Lou. After team MVP Marquise runs afoul of the law, Tyquone feels the pressure to take the Spartans to the state championship, even as he dreams of bigger goals for himself.​
