If you’re in the mood for a gritty, uplifting basketball documentary that will leave you in tears, we have a great Netflix recommendation for you.
A documentary series about the Chinle High School basketball team, a team on the Navajo Nation in Arizona, made its debut Friday, Aug. 2, on Netflix.
PGA golfer Rickie Fowler, who served as an executive producer and whose grandmother is Navajo, told The Associated Press that he joined the project to show audiences the obstacles high school students face on the reservation.
“It was something for me to give back to my Navajo side,” said Fowler, who grew up in California. “But I also wanted to show the hardship of what the rez is all about (and) bring awareness…it will be eye-opening.”
Be sure to have some tissue because you’ll need some at the end.
