As the only woman coach of a boys team in New York Citys toughest AA basketball division, Ruth Lovelace faces unique challenges, but Coach Love has built the Kangaroos into a powerhouse - with playoff appearances in every year of her tenure. Players on her teams work to overcome significant obstacles both on and off the court. Their neighborhood is one of the most dangerous in the city, and players battle homelessness and the stress of having a parent in jail, while battling for victory on the court. Love and her assistant coach Elmer Anderson know where the kids are coming from - and where they have the potential to go. Both were star athletes at Boys and Girls High, who used basketball skills to secure full-scholarships. They know that for their boys theres more at stake in basketball than the score of the game - scholarships are on the line. With intimate access to Love, Anderson and the team, A Woman Among Boys follow the Boys High Kangaroos through the 2007-2008 season as they battled archrival Lincoln High School for the top spot in NYC basketball.
