Life changes overnight for Coach John Harrison when his high school basketball team and state championship dreams are crushed under the weight of unexpected news. When the largest manufacturing plant shuts down and hundreds of families leave their town, John questions how he and his family will face an uncertain future. After reluctantly agreeing to coach cross-country, John and his wife, Amy, meet an aspiring athlete who's pushing her limits on a journey toward discovery. Inspired by the words and prayers of a new-found friend, John becomes the least likely coach helping the least likely runner attempt the impossible in the biggest race of the year.Written by
At 23:14 there's a sign on the high school wall that reads "Vote for Aryn Wright-Thompson". It's no longer there at 1:08:20. See more »
On the 2nd hospital visit between daughter and father (alone), a tight shot shows the father's bedside table with a water glass, tissue box, then TV remote. A few times, the director cuts to a wider, side-shot and the tissue box moves way over to his right, far from the water glass. See more »
To coach Harrison: Ask me who I am.
Who is Hannah Scott?
I am created by God. He designed me. So I'm not a mistake. His Son died for me, just so I could be forgiven. He picked me to be His own, so I'm chosen. He redeemed me, so I am wanted. He showed me Grace, just so I could be saved. He has a future for me, because He loves me! So I don't wonder anymore, Coach Harrison. I AM a child of God! I just wanted you to know.

As far as movies go this will probably not get any Oscar nominations but it is nice to see a movie that tells a compelling story about hope, redemption and doing the right thing even when you don't feel like it. Yes, every plot line is totally predictable but is that so bad? It is also fun to see the results of what is apparently a Kendrick family project. It has a strong Christian evangelistic message that focuses on forgiveness. Doesn't our society (me included!) need a lot more of that!!!
