Two estranged half-brothers lead separate lives until their love of basketball forces them to confront family secrets. Life seems idyllic for handsome and well-to-do Nathan Scott, a star player on the high school basketball team. But before Nathan's father got married, he fathered and abandoned another son. Lucas grew up with a single mother and kept out of Nathan's way until his uncle helped him get a spot on the Tree Hill Ravens. Nathan and Lucas quickly become fierce rivals, but they eventually discover that they are connected by deeper bonds than they had ever suspected. Meanwhile, the residents of Tree Hill weave a complicated web as they fall in and out of love.
