From the creators of ON THE MAP and Executive Produced by Nancy Spielberg & Jon Weinbach (THE LAST DANCE ) comes the unbelievable story of Aulcie Perry, an African American from the violence-filled streets of Newark, NJ, who finds his glory in leading Israel’s Maccabi basketball team to the European championship, only to descend to drugs and jail time, before finally finding redemption - all this while searching for his biological daughter.
