Slaying Goliath, follows the New York Select Huskies, a basketball team of young Harlem boys and their families, through their heartfelt often tumultuous journey to the annual national championships in Coca Beach, Florida. The documentary takes an intimate look at how families and coaches, knowingly or unknowingly, feed their youngest players into the high stakes of the sports industrial complex and the impact that system has on our children's priorities and long term goals. Through this journey we meet parents who feel this team is their child's first crucial step towards the NBA, and we witness controversy unfold as the team attempts, against all odds, to compete against 96 other teams across the country for the American Athletic Union (AAU) National Basketball Championship.
