Inspired by true events, witness the extraordinary journey of Nat "Sweetwater" Clifton (Everett Osborne), who made history as the first Black player to sign an NBA contract. At a time when segregation divided sports, New York Knicks coach Joe Lapchick (Jeremy Piven) and team executive Ned Irish (Cary Elwes) see the future of basketball in Sweetwater's dazzling and unorthodox displays of entertaining athleticism. Together, they challenge convention and break through barriers that would change the game forever.
