Five talented young basketball players from Akron, Ohio star in the true-life coming of age story about friendship and loyalty in the face of great adversity. Coached by a charismatic but inexperienced player's father, and led by future NBA superstar LeBron James, the "Fab Five's" improbable nine-year journey leads them from a decrepit inner-city gym to the doorstep of a national high school championship.

Along the way, the close-knit team is repeatedly tested—both on and off the court—as James' exploding worldwide celebrity threatens to destroy everything they've set out to achieve together.
