“The Rocket" is a hometown story inspired by true events, about a high school football player who suffers a severe head injury and loses his entire life plan. The heaviness of a broken relationship with his father, and losing the identity of "football star" push him to seek a new way to prove himself. Despite being an unlikely runner, the cross country coach brings the young man aboard the team out of necessity, and through much struggle, doubt, and determination, he finds a new way to push towards greatness.
