As Middleview High School's woeful boys basketball team prepares for another certain loss, several unusual dramas take shape around its periphery. Ken (Morberg), a cantankerous referee, finds himself charged with minding his soon-to-be ex-wife's pomeranian; Brent (Phung), the Middleview Ducks' obnoxious assistant coach, lobbies to install a complex offensive system; third-string point guard Joel (Arthurs) attempts to explain existentialism to his teammates; and a group of theatre students plan a confrontational protest after their "post-colonial" King Lear is banned by the administration.


Alors que la piètre équipe de basketball masculin de l’école secondaire Middleview se prépare à une autre défaite, diverses histoires insolites se trament autour. Ken, un arbitre grincheux, doit s’occuper du petit chien de celle qui sera bientôt son ex-épouse. Brent, le détestable entraîneur adjoint, cherche à instaurer un système offensif complexe. Joel, un réserviste, tente d’expliquer à ses coéquipiers ce qu’est l’existentialisme. Enfin, des élèves en théâtre organisent une manifestation après que leur version «postcoloniale» de la pièce King Lear ait été interdite par l’administration.
