Summary:

In 1903, among the three hundred Indian children living at a boarding school in a remote valley in Montana were a handful of teenage girls. They quickly learned to play basketball and resoundingly crushed all opponents, including men's and women's university teams. In less than one year after first seeing a basketball, they were crowned the First World Champions of Basketball at St. Louis' World's Fair. This is the story of that team, seen through the eyes of star player, Minnie Burton.
