Two young men struggling with their violent upbringings find purpose and refuge in streetball.Kestutis and his friend Arni both spend their days on the basketball court. Kestutis is in a gang dealing drugs, while Arni struggles to live at home with his alcoholic father. Both are trying to escape their own realities — until they meet Wyte, the father of Lithuanian streetball.
