Happy enough working at the family construction business alongside his father (Bianco) and younger brother (Maniscalco), Leo lives each week for Sticks’ high-school basketball games. He never misses a chance to cheer on his only child as he rules the court as a star athlete. When the high-school senior gets a surprising and life-changing opportunity to play basketball in college, Leo jumps at the chance to provide a plan for his future away from the family construction business. But when sudden heartbreak threatens to derail Sticks, Leo goes to unexpected lengths to keep his son on this new path.
