Plot Synopsis

Basketball great Kevin Durant of The Oklahoma City Thunder captured the hearts of the nation when he accepted the 2014 NBA Most Valuable Player Award with his emotional speech crediting all of his success to his mother, Wanda Pratt, naming her "the real MVP" for all of her sacrifices that allowed him to pursue his dreams. In Washington, D.C. Wanda, a single mom of two by the time she was 21, works tirelessly to make ends meet and put a roof over the heads of her young sons. With the support of her mother and her best friend, Wanda focuses all her energy on keeping her boys out of trouble and on the basketball court, selflessly putting aside her own dreams and desires to make sure their goals could be achieved. Her hard work paid off as her son Tony earned basketball scholarships and graduated from college while Kevin pursued his dream of playing in the NBA.
