In the midst of a pro basketball lockout, sports agent Ray Burke (Holland) finds himself caught in the face-off between the league and the players. His career is on the line, but Ray is playing for higher stakes. With only 72 hours to pull off a daring plan, he outmaneuvers all the power-players as he uncovers a loophole that could change the game forever. The outcome raises questions of who owns the game – and who ought to.
The film also features appearances from NBA athletes Reggie Jackson, Karl-Anthony Towns and Donovan Mitchell.
