Heaven Is a Playground synopsis

When not at work, a white lawyer, Zach Telander (D.B. Sweeney), likes to leave his affluent surroundings so that he can play basketball with a bunch of inner-city African-American youths. But life beyond the court for these young men is dangerous because of drugs and crime. It's also potentially dangerous when a big-shot sports agent, David Racine (Richard Jordan), comes around to scoop up potential talent. Zach and coach Byron Harper (Michael Warren) try to keep the young men centered.
