Jack Dundee is a meek banker living in Taft, California. He constantly thinks about the 1972 high school football game between Taft and powerhouse Bakersfield. Dundee fumbled a perfect pass from quarterback and friend Reno Hightower, and the game ended in a tie. He wants to replay the game, but has trouble convincing Reno and the town to replay the game. So Jack resorts to desperate measures to make the game reality. Written by

The football game at the high point of the film was shot at the Moorpark Memorial Union High School football field, just before the school moved to the Tierra Rejada Road location. The field was located at 280 Casey Road, on a hill overlooking the City of Moorpark. During the filming, in the wee hours of the morning, the temperature dropped to below freezing. The field was destroyed in the filming and the studio paid to have it re-seeded and re-landscaped. See more
