Marco is an arrogant and ill-mannered basketball coach. After an altercation at work that gets him detained, he is sentenced to community service, forced to work with a team of differently-able players who generally operate under the eye of kindly old-timer Julio. This funny and smart comedy confronts head on issues of prejudice with a fresh tone.
