Synopsis by Maggie Sadler
In 2007, Tim Donaghy (Eric Mabius), a professional referee for the NBA, was charged with gambling on the games. To set the record straight, Donaghy spun a tale of gang violence, in which Baba Battista the bookie (Will Sasso) and Tommy Martino (Scott Wolf), a drug dealer in league with the Gambino family mob, threatened the lives of his loved ones, forcing his arm to participate in the illicit gambling. However, this is not the entire story. Directed by Randall Batinkoff.
