Markus loves basketball and dreams that one day he’ll play basketball professionally in New York. It won’t be an easy path for a boy living in the godforsaken suburb of Korso, especially because he only plays street ball and spends his days drinking with friends. His sister’s boyfriend begins to tease him about his dream and this provokes Markus to change his ways and make his dream come true. Flights to New York come at a price and Markus, jobless and penniless, searches for some way to make money, either honestly or dishonestly. This film is about escaping from the clutches of one’s surroundings to follow The Dream.
