Legendary coach, Carl Johnson, leads four seniors and one freshman phenom as the Bridgehampton High School Killer Bees set out to defend their New York State title. Beside Coach Johnson on the bench is world renowned artist, Joe Zucker. Behind them in the stands community leaders fight to keep the school open and preserve a place for the black population in the Hamptons.
