Off the coast of Alaska lies a remote island that's home to the Tsimshian Indians of Alaska's last native reserve, Metlakatla. For more than a century, two sacred traditions have defined Metlakatla: fishing and basketball. In an improbable journey, two cousins lead their team and town in search of their first state championship in more than thirty years—the only thing that will bring life back to an island that has been rocked by tragedy.

Programmer Notes:

If this were a narrative Hollywood movie, it couldn’t have been written better. Their success feels like a matter of life and death. A tale that's heartbreaking, thrilling, deeply human and raw.
