The tale revolves around a struggling small-town basketball team with a nerdy manager and a Walter Mittyesque coach in 1961. Presented with too few players to scrimmage in practice, the manager takes it upon himself to spread the word throughout the school: We need you on the team. Four young students appear, diminutive in stature and with scrawny chests, unimpressive at first sight. But with the foursome, and their fleet leader Jesse Crosse, the team first experiences shock, then inspiration and constant surprises.
