Aulcie Perry was spotted playing basketball in Harlem in 1976. Narrowly missing a spot on an NBA team, he signed to play for the then fledging Israeli team, Maccabi Tel Aviv and went on to lead the team in an upset victory to win the coveted European Championship in 1977, and again in 1981. A remarkable athlete who captured the nation’s spirit, Aulcie opens up for the first time about his roller coaster career, while searching for a daughter he hasn’t seen in more than 20 years. This is a truly fascinating tale of fame, love, loss and redemption.
