With a bolt of lightning on my kicks...The court is SIZZLING. My sweat is DRIZZLING. Stop all that quivering. Cuz tonight I’m delivering.
12-year-old Josh Bell and his twin brother Jordan are unstoppable on the basketball court, following in the footsteps of their father who played in the NBA. Josh has always been tight with his family — his twin brother always at his side, his coach father cheering him on from the sidelines, his assistant principal mom keeping him in line.
But things start to change as Jordan meets and starts dating a new girl and Josh’s father begins having heart troubles. The close-knit and supportive family Josh has always known is starting to unravel and he doesn’t know what to do about it.
