A talented young football player makes an unlikely comeback after losing his sight in this inspirational sports drama based on the true story of Travis Freeman. As young boys, Travis and his best friend Jerry Baker bonded over their love of football. Years later, as teenagers at a Kentucky high school, Travis and Jerry have become their team's star players. Then, just when it starts to look like nothing can stop him, Travis suddenly falls ill with a virus that destroys his optic nerve overnight. But while Travis may be blind he certainly isn't alone, and with help from his parents, his unbending physical therapist, his coach, and Jerry, the talented young athlete is soon back on the gridiron and preparing to compete in the state playoffs. Now if Travis can just remain focused on the game rather than getting distracted by temptation, perhaps he will prove to himself and those who inspire him that it pays to hold onto your dreams even in the face of certain defeat. Alexa Vega, Stephen Lang, and Timothy Busfield star in the feature directorial debut of actor Dylan Baker (who also co-stars as Travis' father).
