Synopsis

Athens City, Alabama, is a town that lost its heart the day the high school football team lost the state championship and suffered a tragedy. Since that night, the town that once enjoyed superstar status has fallen on hard times. Now, years later, the former coach returns to head up one final season aided by a local who tells the story with a fresh voice. Together, they fight Goliath and learn that love and reconciliation are more important than winning ever could be.
