AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'1956 Melbourne, Australia. A young nation, still scarred from war, prepares to host the first ever Olympic games to be held in the southern hemisphere. On the other side of the world in rural Idaho, Delyle, a heartbroken young man leaves behind a promising basketball career and heads down under as a Mormon missionary. Finding himself in a city gripped with Olympic fever, Delyle struggles to maintain his spirits when faced with indifference, if not downright hostility towards his mission. But when an opportunity to help train Australia’s first Olympic basketball team comes up, Delyle returns to the court, risking everything for the game.'
