Following government-mandated desegregation in 1973, Caleb Castille joins fellow African-American students at Woodlawn High School in Birmingham, Alabama. As violence and anger erupt in the city, Woodlawn football coach Nic Bishop allows an outsider Sean Astin to speak to his players. His message of hope and love leads to a spiritual awakening that inspires star athlete Caleb Castille, his teammates and other members of the community to overcome the hate that surrounds them.
