Bobbie just returned to school after dealing with the suicide of her brother; a former basketball superstar whose life was turned upside down when he was outed as a homosexual. To process her grief, she joins the senior girls’ basketball team as they prepare for a live-or-die championship battle. The crushing weight of expectation, grief, fear, and identity looms as each player navigates their uncertain futures
