Description by OLDIES.com:
Booger is the kind of player one encounters maybe once in a generation - an almost supernaturally gifted player upon whom Sports Illustrated bestowed the title "King of the Streets". The heart of Soul In The Hole lies in the compelling relationship between the charismatic and unpredictable Booger and his coach/surrogate father Kenny Jones. Over the course of one hot summer, Jones - an irrepressible firetruck of a man - takes on Booger, who teeters on the brink of what could either be wild success or total destruction.
This movie takes an unflinching, heartfelt, and often humorous look at the lives and friendships of the young men who play for the Dream Team of Bed-Stuy, the vibrant street culture of Brooklyn, and the love between a coach and his brilliant player.
