Summaries

Summary Sentence: In the lead up to the 1956 Olympic games, a group of missionaries are tasked with helping the fledgling Australian basketball team compete in their first ever Olympics, and in doing so, unite a nation still coming to grips after the war.

Full Summary: Two Mormon missionaries (Aaron Jakubenko and Wade Briggs) encounter a great deal of resistance during their assignment in 1950s Melbourne, but find an unlikely purpose when their basketball skills attract the attention of a local coach (Ben Prendergast). Eventually, they're pressed into service as the impromptu assistant coaches of a basketball team that's aiming for the Olympics, and they mentor the players in both fundamental skills and moral courage. Kevin Sorbo co-stars. Written and directed by J.D. Scott. Author: Violet LeVoit GTCN Movie Schedule Spirit of the Game - IMDB
