After years of trying, the Phoenix Hagen basketball team finally makes it to Germany's 1st league, the ‘Bundesliga’. The fans in the small, industrial town of Hagen are thrilled. The problem is, in order to stay in the 1st league they have to win a few games. And Phoenix just keeps on losing. Their young coach is desperate. Looking for help fast, the team signs Michael Jordan. But their savior brings a lot more baggage to Hagen than just a famous name.
