Also known as "Heart of a Hero"

Trey a young boy's father dies and Ms Banner a woman in his school arranges for Trey to meet with Roy a fireman who lost his son in 911. The boy is positive and the fireman is kind of distant and a lot older. At some point they have a meeting of minds because they both like Soap Box Racing.

It shows how they deal with their hurt and anger from the past and also for losing a car race. Times change and Trey and Roy become friends but Roy is in some financial trouble.

Parts of the movie made me cry and laugh. It is a good family film full of real life sadness and joy.
