Meet the De La Salle Spartans and their legendary football coach Bob Ladouceur (Jim Caviezel) who, For 12 consecutive seasons took them from obscurity to an incredible 151-game winning streak that shattered all records for any American sport.

Coach Ladouceur builds a seemingly invincible, record-setting national powerhouse, yet all along the way, he "emphasizes to his young men the value of purpose and significance over the glory of titles and streaks".

It's a formula that works year after year after year—even when everyone else only wants to focus on The Streak. As he tells his team, "Winning is just a way of keeping score for the days when opportunity and perfect effort meet."

With the excitement of becoming team leaders countering the pressure of keeping The Streak alive, a new group of seniors are ready to take over. But when real-life adversity leaves the team reeling, the Spartans must decide if the sacrifice, commitment, and teamwork they have always trusted in can rebuild what is now disintegrating around them.

Inspired by a true story, "When the Game Stands Tall" by Neil Hayes.
