De La Salle High School is on a high. Over 12 years, their football team has led them to an extraordinary 151 straight victories. As the Spartans lace up their shoes for a new season, they seem untouchable and ready to continue what is simply known as the “streak.” But when real-life adversity throws them off course, the team must decide if they can keep trusting the commitment, faith, sacrifice and teamwork they’ve always counted on, and tackle what is crumbling around them. Stars Jim Caviezel (Passion of the Christ), Michael Chiklis (The Shield), Alexander Ludwig (The Hunger Games), Clancy Brown (The Shawshank Redemption) and Laura Dern (Jurassic Park).
