Sixteen-year-old Xtra Keys hopes to raise his son better than his boozy, razor-edged mother raised him, and he just might get his wish when he's thrust into an unorthodox alternative school full of underprivileged boys.

Catana Starks, from historically black university Tennessee State, became the first woman ever to coach an all-men's team at the collegiate level. Through grit and determination, she overcame incredible odds and deep-seated prejudice from all corners to guide a rag-tag group of golfers to an all-time record championship season. Written by
From The Rough Productions
Dr. Starks real student golfers include but are not limited to: Sean Foley (a well respected golf swing coach), Robert Dinwiddie (European Tour multiple event winner) and former Michigan State Men's golf coach Sam Puryear. See more »

As a minority woman, this film spoke loudly to me. Don't give up despite the odds, keep doing your best, will be my take away after viewing this very inspirational film. An African-American woman swim coach at TSU becomes the first woman coach for a men's college golf team. Everything was an obstacle at this mostly African-American university, in particular, golf is just not a very popular sport for African-Americans. So Catana Sparks had to be creative and round up as best a team as she can, mostly recruiting internationally and ending up with a not so African-American team! We need more films like this, especially in America where people can see that with hard work, nothing is impossible!
