Let Him Be a Basketball Player tells the story of a young and clumsy boy named Ranta (so big that he could be tying ties to giraffes), whose life turns upside down when his gym teacher Salta one day invites him to join the basketball team. This marks the beginning of an exciting path full of unpredictable adventures where Ranta is always accompanied by his funny friend Smodlak.
