For Feature Film Consideration


Everything is bigger in Texas, even 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 kids aspire to summer jobs 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 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 father returns to town.
