What is White Men Can’t Jump about?

In this modern retelling of the iconic 1992 film, the streetball hustling culture of Los Angeles is celebrated with all the bouncing, dribbling and trash-talking you could imagine.

The film follows two young men, Kamal – once a promising player who derailed his future in the sport – and Jeremy – a former star of the game whose injuries stalled his own career – who are complete opposites and seemingly miles apart.

As per the official synopsis, juggling tenuous relationships, financial pressures and serious internal struggles, the two ballers find they might have more in common than they imagined possible.
