Summary
"Once a year, Labor Day weekend marks the culmination of a summer's worth of early mornings, late nights and hours of practice. It's where for some, a local playground is remembered as a benchmark in history and for others, a place that must be forgotten. It's where bitter rivals will battle by day only to become better friends by night. And it's where one team will eventually find glory and etch its place in the 80-year history of the game. For many Chinese American athletes, Labor Day is dedicated to one thing and one thing only: nine-man. 9-MAN follows the history of the game, from the discrimination that many Chinese American immigrants faced in the 1930s to the physical and emotional battles that take place on the courts. Pivoting between the action on the parking lots and the late-night parties, the film captures the spirit of nine-man, as the players not only battle for a championship, but fight to preserve the sport they love"--Kevin Lee, CAAMfest website
