The film follows a season inside one of the nation’s top high school football programs. Two years removed from a State Championship, the Grant Pacers are poised to make another run. But fierce opponents, the neighborhood, and a major tragedy (the violent, midseason death of their coach) all stand in their way. Grant Union High School has been a venerable factory of NCAA Division 1 and NFL players over the last twenty years producing stars like Donte’ Stallworth, Onterrio Smith, Paris Warren, Aaron Garcia, and most recently the nation’s top college recruit - Shaq Thompson. Grant is located in one of Sacramento’s written-off corners where gangs, drugs, and violence are regular obstacles students must overcome. For many players, football may be their only way out of Del Paso Heights. How will these young men defeat seemingly insurmountable odds and succeed on the gridiron and in life? Watch as they battle through a harsh season on their way to their ultimate goals of college scholarships, a chance at the NFL, and success in life off the football field. But this year their dreams take a backseat to reality and it is up to these young men to heal an entire neighborhood devastated by an unthinkable tragedy.
