A school and football team combats racism in the 1970's in this religious-based period drama. After racial tensions begin to boil over at a high school, the school's football coach (Nic Bishop) allows a local man preaching a message of positivity, faith and love (Sean Astin) to speak to his players. Their play begins to improve, and the town begins to heal socially and spiritually in response. Jon Voight co-stars as college football coaching legend Paul "Bear" Bryant.

"The compelling based-on-true-events film tells the story of how the Woodlawn High School football team and star running back overcame a racially charged atmosphere in early 1970s Birmingham, Alabama, to triumph both on and off the field." - 10/15/2015 Chicago Sun-Times
