In February 2012, the New York Knicks, mired in a disappointed season and out of desperation, looked to the end of their bench and found Jeremy Lin, an undrafted free agent from Harvard. On the verge of seeing his lifelong NBA dream vanish, Lin – at, or near what was believed to be his last chance as an an NBA professional – underwent a now-legendary run, obliterating stereotypes along the way, and in the process birthed a global phenomenon known as “Linsanity.” Basketball – and the world – was never the same. Director Evan Jackson Leong chronicles Jeremy Lin’s inspirational story long before that fateful month, and at a time when Lin was still struggling to find a place in a league that didn’t want him, while never wavering on his faith and hope for an opportunity.
