When the largest manufacturing plant shuts down, hundreds of families leave town, crushing high school basketball coach John Harrison's (Alex Kendrick) dreams of his team winning the state championship. It leaves John questioning how he and his wife, Amy, will face an uncertain future.

He's recruited to coach cross-country, which he reluctantly does, despite not really respecting the sport. John meets an aspiring athlete who's pushing her limits on a journey toward discovery. Inspired by the words and prayers of a newfound friend, John becomes the least likely coach helping the least likely runner attempt the impossible in the biggest race of the year.

  • 5 stars "This was the best movie that I’ve seen in a long time! We need more movies like this! It had some funny parts and some parts where you need a Kleenex. This was so touching and inspiring! It is a good thing when a movie makes you stop and think about life. It had no foul language or violence which is a good thing. All should see this movie!"
