New schoolteacher Martin Conlon causes a stir when he introduces a new game called basketball and uses its lessons to teach his students about teamwork and life. When two young German immigrants arrive in town, the schoolhouse transforms from playground to social battleground. Amidst the strained community, Conlon enters his students in a basketball game against an established adult squad. In a contest that transcends the action on the court, the community pulls together and supports Conlon’s efforts. As the game unfolds, understanding and acceptance ultimately triumph over hate.
