The documentary film follows the biggest night of the year in tight-knit, all-American Murray, Kentucky – the last home game of the season for the Division 1 Murray State Racers.

Murray is a town so small its entire population fits into the basketball stadium, fans bake cakes for the players’ birthdays and the head coach is engaged to the town’s middle school teacher.

In Kentucky, a state where college basketball is religion and the Racers are the underdog, how do they keep on winning?

On the biggest night of the year, the team’s NBA-bound star player does something surprising that reveals the secret of Murray’s success.

"The Home Team" screens at SXSW on Sunday, March 9 at 11am.
