"...A modest yet beautiful film set amid the turmoil of World War I....It is full of a warmth that fills the heart..."
When Martin Conlon (Coyote) arrives in a small town in the Pacific Northwest as America is reeling from World War I, he brings with him a message of love and teamwork. Conlon uses his position as a schoolteacher to introduce the game of basketball to the community. After a group of German refugees settle in the town, tensions mount. Conlon uses an approaching basketball game--between his students and a much older squad--to teach the town a very valuable lesson about unity and understanding.
