The story of four high school boys whose undefeated basketball season and friendship are threatened after a drive-by shooting leaves one of them in a coma and one of them with a secret. Brent Fencett, Jed Bracken, and T.J. Lewis are star players on the Charlevoix High School Basketball team; Jackson Carlson is their most obnoxious fan.

The consequences of Brent's choice leave T.J. in the hospital, and Brent's soul in turmoil. Written by Frontier Boys

Disappointing
27 October 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Where does one start to describe this movie? It takes place in a small northern Michigan town during the winter - basketball season. But as one reviewer said, it is NOT a basketball movie. It's a story about 4 buddies who come of age and where right versus wrong, good versus evil, etc. A little too predictable. Some of the camera work was very good. However, the story was weak. I felt it lacked continuity and believability. It just seemed too forced to try to get the storyline across in short periods of time.

I think the producer should have inquired from someone who was not associated with the film prior to it's release to be sure the unknowing public would understand it because i found it confusing at times. The acting was poor as well. It was obvious and stereo-typical. The fat kid who can't make the team is always the jokester drawing attention to himself. The quiet kid is the one who faces the dilemma, etc. etc. Kudos for moments of beautiful cinematography, but thumbs down to the project over all. It was just cheesy. Save two hours and watch Stand By Me or the Goonies.
