Synopsis by Jason Buchanan

Inspired by the tragic true-life story of high school starting quarterback Luke Abbate, who died as a result of injuries sustained in a reckless driving incident just four days shy of his 16th birthday, director Rick Bieber's earnest docudrama shows how Luke's untimely death motivated his older brother Jon to lead the Wake Forest football team through the most successful season in the school's history, and saved the lives of five people in desperate need of organ transplants.
