Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Steve Johnson is the new teacher at the tiny high school next to the Indian reservation, and as a result, he can't say no when his boss recruits him to help referee the upcoming varsity basketball game against Winnebago. Steve feels superior to the townies, who in turn feel superior to the 'Bago players and residents.

By the end of the game--which quickly turns violent and ugly--new lessons will be learned by all. A story about sports, attitude, small towns, and harsh realities.
