Synopsis

A personal journey by Hubert Davis, son of former Harlem Globetrotter Mel Davis, now coaching young basketball players in Vancouver. Mel fell in love at first sight with Hubert's mother, a white woman, at a time when racism made their union impossible. Structured into three chapters entitled "love," "recollection" and "redemption," Hubert uses personal interviews, archival footage and home movies to delve into his father's past in the hope of finding a new direction for his own.
