In the summer of 1976, Aulcie Perry was playing basketball in Harlem when he was signed by a scout for Maccabi Tel Aviv.  A year later, while taking the team to new heights, Perry converted to Judaism and became one of Israel's biggest stars.  Behind the scenes, though, all was not well.  This is the story of a remarkable athlete who captured the spirit of a nation.
