Every summer in the thriving subculture of New York City streetball, neighborhood teams congregate in intensely competitive playground tournaments. This summer the team to beat is Kenny's Kings, and its star point guard Ed "Booger" Smith. Booger is the kind of player one encounters maybe once in a generation; an almost supernaturally gifted player upon whom Sports Illustrated bestowed the title "King Of The Streets". The heart of Soul In The Hole lies in the compelling relationship between the charismatic and unpredictable Booger and his coach/surrogate father Kenny Jones. Over the course of one hot summer, Jones an irrepressible firetruck of a man - takes on Booger, who teeters on the brink of what could either be wild success or total destruction.
