"More Than A Game" is a coming-of-age story that follows the lives of five young basketball players from Akron, Ohio. Coached by an inexperienced father and led by future NBA superstar LeBron James, the five aspiring professional athletes end up at a national hip school championship, but not before pressure threatens to destroy their journey and their mission.
