Guarding Eddy
Scott McKinsey's inspirational drama Guarding Eddy stars Brian Presley as Eddy, an 18 year old who dreams of playing pro hoops for the L.A. Clippers. Hampering him in his quest is the fact that he is developmentally disabled. He sneaks away to the City of Angels to try and make his dream come true, but eventually ends up spending time with Mike (Kiko Ellsworth), a former pro baller who now works at a shelter. Their friendship blossoms into something that sustains both of them, and helps Mike get over the bitterness he feels about how his career ended.
