Synopsis

For the young basketball players who train at the SEEDS Academy in Dakar, Senegal, the potential reward is huge: full scholarships to the top prep schools in the United States, where the right combination of skill and dedication will earn them a great education, pave the way to college and open the door to basketball at the NCAA level... and maybe even a shot at the NBA. This heart-warming documentary that inspires without preaching follows four young men who make the cut, receive scholarships, and head off to the USA.
