Hardwood Dreams chronicles one season in the life of the Morningside High School basketball team, the defending California state champs. The film captures the heart and soul of urban life in America through one of its primary and most positive traditions, by taking an extraordinary and unprecedented look at the role basketball plays in the lives of inner-city youth. In the wake of the L.A. riots, the general escalation of drug abuse and inner-city crime, Hardwood Dreams is a timely and moving portrait about the youth of today and what they think about, what they care about, and what kind of lives they are preparing for. It’s about hopes and dreams and putting it all on the line.
