About this movie

Life changes overnight for coach John Harrison when his high school basketball team and state championship dreams are crushed under the weight of unexpected news. When the largest manufacturing plant in town suddenly shuts down and hundreds of families begin moving away, John must come to grips with the challenges facing his family and his team. Urged by the school's principal to fill-in and coach a sport he doesn't know or like, John is frustrated and questioning his worth… until he crosses paths with a student struggling with her own journey. From the creators of WAR ROOM, COURAGEOUS and FIREPROOF, this inspiring family film dares to leave you filled with hope, inspired to dream, and asks the question: what do you allow to define you?”

Even though it started a little slow, it picks up and finishes strong. As humans we are weak and show are fallibilities all the time. This movie does a great job showing us our need for Christ and His forgiveness and our need to be forgiving of one another. Only in Christ Jesus is Salvation found, there is NO OTHER WAY, amen.

10 STARS!! As always, the Kendrick brothers NEVER disappoint!! This movie was AWESOME!!!! This movie is about forgiving, knowing who YOU are in Christ, endurance and more! This is a must see for ALL!! I love movies with a purpose! I'm soooo excited and filled right now! I cried and more! It is very thought provoking. Helps you to look at your own life and evaluate. Many want to judge others, but we must look in the mirror and do better ourselves. Every time I think they have out done themselves, they have done it again!! With so much going on in the world, their movies are so refreshing and something we need! I always look forward to their movies and this was not an exception. I wished they could produce one ever year!! GREAT MOVIE!!!
