The Basket

A picturesque Pacific Northwest community raising its wheat and children in the midst of a nation reeling from World War I sets the stage for "The Basket." In a time of pain and prejudice woven against a background of beauty, "The Basket" ultimately points to triumph and hope in a changing America. The arrival of a new schoolteacher Martin Conlon (Peter Coyote) sets the town in motion as he introduces a new game called basketball.
