After the tragic death of star volleyball player Caroline "Line" Found, a team of dispirited high school girls must band together under the guidance of their tough-love coach in hopes of winning the state championship.
Caroline "Line" Found is the star volleyball player on the Iowa City West High School Volleyball Team and well-loved by members of the community. With Line as the captain, the Trojans have been undefeated and everyone has high hopes for West to win the championship again after the previous year, especially against their long-time rival, City High. During a party at her house, Line decides to secretly sneak away to visit her mother Ellyn at the hospital, where she is being treated for cancer. That night, Line herself is killed in a moped accident, leaving the entire community in mourning. Despite the school and community still in shock over Line's death, the Trojans' coach, Kathy Bresnahan continues to hold volleyball practice.

The flag in the Trojans' gym is a 48-star American flag from before Alaska and Hawaii became states. By comparison, the flag at the end of the film during the "State" match has the full, proper 50-star arrangement. See more »
I recently watched the movie " The Miracle Season" and I was enjoyed with volleyball that I would go to my backyard and play volleyball. The main characters are Caroline ( Danika Yarosh), Coach Kathy ( Helen Hurt), Kelly Fisher her best friend since a little kid ( Erin Moriaty), Ellyn Found Caroline's mom (Jillian Fargey), and Ernie Found Caroline's dad ( William Hurt).
The story is about a girls volleyball team in West high school. They are trying to win a 2nd championship to make a legend but they are facing City high for the second time. Caroline and her best friend Kelly are the funniest people in the team. Although Caroline may be the team captain she is one of the best people in the world. She is always cheering and helping her team out to pull out the best of them. Caroline's mom is in the hospital because she has cancer but Caroline is alway visiting her. Although her mom may be sad Caroline is always cheering her up by saying " mom promise me that you will be here at my graduation, at my wedding and you are going to dance with me at me wedding, and you are going to be at my funeral right?" Her mom promises that she will do all this it is very emotional the specific things Caroline told her that they both cried that tears came out. Kelly and Caroline decided to throw a party after their first volleyball game so before their game they invited everyone that they saw. I would tell you more but I don't want to spoil it for you so you would want to watch the movie.
I really did enjoy this movie especially the Character Caroline I even tried to act like her by cheering people on when they are sad and need someone by their side. For that reason I gave this movie a 5/5 because when you watch the movie it will knock the ball right out of your hands. All movies teach you a lesson and this movie taught me that if you don't give up at all and you just keep trying success will soon come to you. For example if you play basketball and you don't give up you could win a trophy. I really recommend this movie to people who like a bit of emotion, sad, exciting, and athletic movies especially volleyball. I do recommend you to watch this movie and you can see how exciting it is. Hopefully if you watch it you will enjoy it as much as I did.
