When an underfunded charter school for at-risk teens receives a gift of lacrosse equipment, they are determined to put it to use— despite their students’ lack of experience and enthusiasm. The seemingly impossible task of forming a team is tackled by Bob Selkin, a local Jewish ophthalmologist, who volunteers to coach these young men. Selkin leads the team not only to athletic success, but to personal and academic successes as well. Emmy Award-winning director Ron Yassen tells the inspiring story of perseverance and the transformative power of sports on players and their mentors.
