In this whimsical documentary, Utah filmmaker Dan Austin details the basketball pilgrimage he, his brother and best friend started when they hopped aboard their bicycles and headed east from a pickup court in Venice Beach, Calif., toward the NBA Hall of Fame in Springfield, Mass. Shooting hoops on makeshift courts across the country, the trio meets countless "heroes," everyday folks whose generosity renews their faith in the goodness of humanity.
