Bunny and Nasir used to be best friends, but that was until Nasir found out his friend was leaving their public school to attend a nearby private school on a basketball scholarship. Bunny misses Nasir too, but is focused on his dream of playing professional basketball, mainly with the goal of earning enough money to take care of his family financially. With Bunny gone, Nasir starts spending more time with his cousin Wallace. Nasir learns that Wallace and his Grandmother are being evicted and can’t help but feel that everyone is willing to help his former basketball star best friend, but not his struggling cousin. As Wallace becomes more desperate to stop his eviction, he starts making bets on Bunny’s basketball games. With odds high in Bunny’s favor, if he lost one game, Wallace would have enough money to stay in his apartment. Nasir feels guilty that he cannot do more for Wallace, guilty enough to ask Bunny to throw a game?
