After being ousted from NCAA, a men’s basketball coach takes a job at an elite private high school.
After getting ousted from his job in the NCAA for an outburst, a men’s basketball coach must take a job at an elite private high school, in an eﬀort to redeem what’s left of his career and reputation. At first, Coach Marvyn Korn sees the Westbrook players as a mere pitstop on his road back to college ball. At the same time, the players don’t take themselves seriously as a team. The unemotional and stoic Marvyn Korn soon learns that teenagers are complicated human beings who require more than just tough love and two-a-days – they need real mentorship and genuine care. By discovering how to connect with his players and by cultivating more empathy and vulnerability, Coach Korn starts to grow into the man he’s always secretly hoped to be… and the father he never had. Meanwhile, the players learn to take themselves more seriously, rising to Marvyn’s standards of excellence and finding their footing both on and oﬀ the court.
