About the Overcomer Movie (ON DIGITAL NOVEMBER 26 – COMING TO BLU-RAY™ AND DVD DECEMBER 17):
Life changes overnight for coach John Harrison when his high school basketball team’s state championship dreams are crushed under the weight of unexpected news.

Urged by the school’s principal to fill-in and coach a sport he doesn’t know or like, John is frustrated and questioning his worth… until he crosses paths with a student struggling with her own journey.
