Courage, Discernment, Accountability, Looking Out For Others
It takes courage to do the right thing.
Faith Ford, Tony Oller, Joe Adler, Alyssa Shafer, Philip Casnoff, and L. Warren Young
Through mysterious footage captured on an old malfunctioning video camera, Sinclair High School’s star quarterback Tyler McFarland (played by Tony Oller) learns that some of his teammates have been bullying Cory Walker (played by Joseph Adler), a troubled new transfer student. Aware that sharing this information with the coach (played by L. Warren Young: “The Blind Side”) might get his friends kicked off the team and ultimately cost the school the state championship, Tyler must choose what’s more important: winning or doing what’s right. As these events unfold, the camera also reveals more surprising footage to Tyler’s kid sister Lucy (played by Alyssa Shafer). She learns that Cory has a secret past, unknown even to him. Now Lucy must convince her mom (played by Faith Ford: “Murphy Brown”) and family that the camera’s revealing insight isn’t a product of her imagination as she enlists their help to find the answers Cory so desperately needs. It’s a compelling and intriguing story that shows both the challenges and rewards of doing the right thing even when it’s tough to do.
