On April 4, 1968, an epic basketball game between Greek team AEK and Slavia Prague gave Greece its first European Cup against all odds. It was the Guinness world record for most-attended basketball game, and a victory that is talked about to this day. Acclaimed director Boulmetis uses this historic sporting event as the backdrop for a docudrama that reveals the fascinating personal and political histories that came to play on the court that night.
