Determined to run for his high school's cross-country team, the sixteen-year-old runner, Alex Taylor, seems to indulge himself with an out-of-reach aspiration, as young Alex has been blind since the age of two. Under those circumstances, Geoff Taylor, a probation officer for teens and Alex's father, strikes up a deal with an unlikely running partner: the troubled youth, Brad Coleman, an exceptional runner who, unfortunately, squanders his talent running away from the law. Now, as the two boys have to work together in unison to overcome not only the prejudices of the coach, the track team members, and of course, bullying, a genuine but fragile bond begins to form. Will Alex and Brad make their dream come true?
His dream... His chance... Their race.
