The Giant of the Court


Cesare and Gianna, middle school classmates, are determined to make their dream of playing basketball come true...

But on the court, where they train for the 3x3 tournament, there seems to be room for everyone except them. They decide to go there at dawn, when the city is still sleeping, to train hard. Under the basket they meet a bearded giant who becomes their teammate and friend. Thanks to his guidance and their own determination, the two friends will discover that to be successful in sport it’s not enough to sweat between running and push-ups: it also takes courage, empathy and trust in your teammates.
