Examines the hardships, sufferings, mishaps and sacrifices made in order to persist in one of the poorest urban areas in the United States: Flint, Michigan. The documentary highlights the frightening education system in Flint where schools are designed to produce basketball players only. On the other hand, students who are non basketball players are left with mediocre excuses for classrooms while adjusting to the lack of libraries needed to empower young minds. The film also takes a very close look at children who bare the armor of strength in trying to escape Flint, which has been successful in producing a legacy of basketball players ranging from playground hopefuls to the pros.
