African-American basketball player Aulcie Perry moved to Israel, converted to Judaism, changed his name to Elisha Ben Abraham and led Maccabi Tel Aviv to an upset win in the European Championship. But his charmed life came to a dramatic halt when he was jailed for narcotics smuggling, the end result of an addiction to drugs. Now years later, Aulcie is committed to uplifting others confronting the disease of addiction, working with youth, and sharing his story of rising to greatness and falling from grace.
