Sugar (dazzling first-time actor Algenis Perez Soto) is plucked from poverty in the Dominican Republic and sent to Iowa to pursue his dream of professional basketball, but soon finds himself out of his depth. This second feature from young directing duo of Oscar-nominated Half Nelson brings fresh insight to the American dream, grappling effectively with the complex realities of migration.
