WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

Charles (Okeniyi) and Vera Antetokounmpo (Badaki) migrate from Nigeria to Greece, where they struggle to provide their five children – including brothers Giannis (Uche Agada), Thanasis (Ral Agada), Kostas (Osimuwa) and Alex (Shomanke) – by selling souvenirs to tourists. With the threat of deportation looming over them, the brothers show a natural talent on the basketball courts, thrusting them into the world of the NBA…
