When T.J. and Tyron arrive at Full Court basketball camp, T.J. realizes how easy it is for college coaches and "street agents" to exploit kids like Tyron, who don't have the smarts to match their double-clutch dunks. T.J. has been the one keeping Tyron's head above water both on and off the court, and he's angered by the agents' attempts to move in on his friend. He finds refuge from the hectic scene on a footbridge leading to a cult-like Bible camp. On the bridge, he meets LuAnn, a pregnant girl who bases her actions solely on guidance from the Lord. As parallels become apparent in the lives of his old friend and his new one, T.J. begins to realize that the best way to help others may be to teach them to think for themselves.
