Seth Gordon of Undefeated, For All Mankind, and The King of King is back with a new inspirational documentary series, The Long Game: Bigger Than Basketball. The film focuses on the chronicles of an excellent NBA prospect, Makur Maker, confidently purposed to control his life fully- but the unexpected happens.
What's The Story
Maker forgoes his NBA career to play for a historically black university, Howard University, making him an outstanding high-school sportsman of the present times to commit to such a university.
As Maker strives to accomplish his NBA dream, the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic and unanticipated physical challenges endanger his college career.
The film also investigates how Maker’s voyage from escaping the South-Sudan war as a child and his clannish morale boosters led him to a historic black university. The HBCU allowed Maker to give an impressive comment following America’s cultural reaction to the Black Lives Matter campaign.
The Long Game: Bigger Than Basketball teaches hope, endurance, determination, and confidence as the key to success.
