Well worth your time
6 May 2019 | by rrogalanSee all my reviews

A co worker told me about this documentary, I am a big basketball fan , but to be honest, I don't remember Felipe Lopez. This documentary tells the story of a kid from the Dominican Republic who was consider a phenom, a legend in high school, he was called , " the Dominican Michael Jordan ". It's a success story, not by American standards, but , by an immigrant standard. The kid became successful as a respected human being , which is much richer than any dollar amount. I had tears in my eyes when the documentary was over . Highly recommended.
