As a typical teenager, Travis Freeman (Mark Hapka) is a local hero both on and off the high-school football field in his small Kentucky town, but in 1997, Travis contracts an infection that destroys his optic nerve and renders him blind overnight. With the loving help and concern of his parents, physical therapist, coach and best friend, Travis demonstrates what true bravery is: He continues to compete on the gridiron and helps his team advance to the state finals.
Review – What a fantastic movie! Some times bad things happen to good people and we don’t know why. That happened to Travis. In many towns football is a huge deal and Travis is the hero. Once he is blind he loses hope. He has to learn to use his cane to walk and to live again.
Travis’ therapist was amazing. She won’t allow him to sit around feeling sorry for himself. The best part is that this movie is based on a true story. My entire family loved it!
