Jason Lewis is a star college basketball player just back from WWII. He's a hero, missing two fingers on his shooting hand. He can't play any longer, so he makes the ultimate player's sacrifice - he becomes a referee. Set in post-War New York during the founding of the NBA, No Blood, No Foul is the story of a man who must come to terms with a debilitating injury and chase after dreams of perfection in a decidedly imperfect world.
