Young boys all over the world have dreams of playing in the NBA one day. That includes African Muslim boys who watch the NBA on television from halfway around the world. We follow four especially tall Muslim boys from towns in West Africa as they try to work their ways from a basketball school set up in Senegal, to prep schools in the United States where they will get noticed by NBA scouts. These four boys have dreams that have driven them their entire lives and they are not going to stop until they reach center court on an NBA roster. Along the way, they learn just how cutthroat professional sports can be and they also start to appreciate how important family is in their lives.
