This story begins in Chinatown in the heart of San Francisco in 1989 and takes us to Beijing, China. SEEKING:

MANFORD – a 17 year old, Chinese American high school student. He is scrappy, intense. He attacks the rim with a ruthless crossover. He is not tall. More of an Allen Iverson than a Jeremy Lin.

CONNIE - 25, female, Chinese American, Manford's cousin and UC Berkeley grad student. She is level-headed. She sees the big picture. A Chris Paul/Klay Thompson type.

WEN CHANG - 43, male, Chinese, coach of Beijing University's men's basketball team. He is observant and efficient. He favors three pointers over aggressive inside shots. Tim Duncan would appreciate his energy. (his English is formal, but relatively unaccented.)

SAUL - 52, male, Jewish, coach of University of San Francisco's men's basketball team. He is a shit- talking, shot blocking, washed up Larry Bird.
