This inspiring high-school drama is based on a real-life hero, Coach Ken Carter. Carter (Samuel L. Jackson) starts as the new basketball coach at his alma mater, Richmond High, only to find it in worse shape than ever. Realizing that the players don't take school seriously, Carter requires each team member to sign a contract that he'll maintain a minimum GPA and attend all classes. At first rejecting this tough-as nails approach, the team becomes more successful on the court, and they come to embrace Carter. But when their report cards show bad grades, Carter gets serious and benches the whole team. Is Carter doing the right thing by making the players sacrifice their short-term glory for the good of their future?
