Hardwood is a personal journey by director Hubert Davis, the son of former Harlem Globetrotter Mel Davis, who explores how his father's decisions affected his life and those of his extended family. Elegantly structured into three chapters entitled 'love,' 'recollection' and 'redemption,' Davis uses personal interviews, archival footage and home movies to delve into his father's past in the hope of finding a new direction for his own.

At its core, Hardwood is about the power of redemption and the healing of the bonds between fathers and sons.
