In the valleys of the triqui region lives a group of indigenous kids that have been wining basketball championships all over the world, occupying minutes in the TV news and becoming the hope for his people.
It was after an unexpected meeting with the triquis children, when Professor Sergio felt the need of helping such a marginalized and forgotten society. After 4 years, he came back to the region as head coach and ideologist of this development program.
In this documentary the protagonists reflect about the establishment of this basketball program as a way of integral development for this community and its consequences.
The film is a journey from the triquis' villages in Oaxaca to the Barcelona Basketball Cup in which we face the hard living conditions of the region, the unfair cultural traditions with women, the long training sessions, the study nights; all of it overcome with effort, union and motivation.
