The film follows Forrest “Phog” Allen (Kip Niven) head coach of the Jayhawks men’s basketball team from 1919 to 1956, as he recruited 7 foot 1inch Wilt Chamberlain (Justin Wesley), capturing the trials and tribulations that Chamberlain (Philadelphia 76ers and Los Angeles Lakers) faces during his time with the Jayhawks. It explores the impact of Chamberlain’s presence in Lawrence, Kansas, and the impact his participation had on college sports at a time when the Civil Rights Movement was just beginning in America.
