Genre: Drama, True Story, Sports
A gifted high school football player must learn to boldly embrace his talent and his faith as he battles racial tensions on and off the field .
A film based on an inspiring real-life story about love and unity in a school torn by racism and hate in the 1970s. In 1973, a spiritual awakening captured the heart of nearly every player of the Woodlawn High School football team, including its coach Tandy Gerelds. Their dedication to love and unity in a school filled with racism and hate leads to the largest high school football game ever played in the torn city of Birmingham, Alabama, and the rise of its first African American superstar, Tony Nathan.
A movie that touch and changes our ways of thinking and behaviour towards others always stands out. I can’t wait to watch this movie.
WHY HATE BECAUSE OF COLOUR? A QUESTION WE ALL MUST ASK OURSELVES.
