Everything is bigger in Texas, except here in Tiny.

Where traditions run deep.

Where folks are polite even if some hold onto their homegrown prejudices.

Where big city is considered a four-letter word.

Where few kids choose to dream beyond a job at the Dairy Queen.

Where basketball, not football, is king unlike most Texas high schools.

Where there exists a distinctly Texan culture.

It’s 1988 in a one blinking-stoplight town in Comanche County, deep in the heart of Texas, pre-cell phone, pre-Internet, pre-polarizing political identities.  


In a tale of fathers and sons set in 1980’s small town Texas, a high school basketball prodigy hits a wall of expectations, the community's and his own. Then, his estranged and unwelcome gay father returns to town.
