Synopsis

Mr. William is a new face on the Three Nations Reservation. This new English teacher catches the locals unaware. Not only is he not from around there, but he is black. He faces an uphill battle to gain acceptance in the tight-knit community until he begrudgingly agrees to coach the girls high-school basketball team. The team has a lot to learn to break out of its infamous losing streak, but the ultimate question is, who will be teaching whom?
