Maya (Amy Minderhout), a beautiful high school graduate, dreams of a career in basketball. Along with her best friend Mars (Desmond Faison), she trains like there's no tomorrow. However, with an alcoholic mother (Sam Gros), an unsuccessful dating life, and many denied basketball scholarships, Maya finds herself at a low point in her life.
With the help of Mars, Maya decides to enter with him a local hoops contest that could possibly be the break she needs. But then, her life takes a turn with the arrival of Sam (Sara Taylor), a sexy college girl who sparks unexpected desires of romance and sexuality in Maya.
As Maya spends more time with Sam, her practicing sessions with Mars start to slack, putting the basketball contest and her life's dream at risk. To complicate matters further, Mars reveals his secret crush on her, prompting Maya to make some serious decisions about love, life and basketball.
This tender and delicately weaved story provides a close and down-to-earth look at a young woman’s journey of self-realization, and comes most alive with the memorable soundtrack that Arab-American writer and director Rolla Selbak, notably, composed several of its catchiest tunes.
