He Got Game tells the story of Jake Shuttleworth (Denzel Washington). Shuttleworth has spent the last six years in prison after accidentally killing his wife during a violent domestic dispute, leaving his son, star basketball prospect Jesus Shuttleworth (Ray Allen), to fend for himself. One day, the prison warden (Ned Beatty) approaches Jake with an unusual offer: He’ll be given a week of parole to convince Jesus to attend the governor’s alma mater, with the promise of a shortened sentence if he succeeds.
The screening will be followed by a Q&A with professional Basketball Player Melita Emanuel-Carr, who has represented team GB and is a Commonwealth Games Silver Medalist.
