STARTING 5 tells the story of the ambitious project "HAMBURG TOWERS". The former Basketball Pro Marvin Willoughby and his colleagues are doing social work and building up local basketball talents for over seven years. The film starts when most of the vision is realized. In the new gym the HAMBURG TOWERS are combining social work and professional basketball. But the dimensions of the project are huge: Marvin has to deal with never ending negotiations with politicians, sponsors and player agents. How can they manage to combine social work and professional basketball and how will they manage not to go down with it?
