(2018) (Erin Moriarty, Helen Hunt) (PG)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Drama: The stars and coach of a high school girls volleyball team must contend with the tragic death of their team captain as they try to repeat as state champions.
- It's 2011 and Iowa City's West High Trojans girls volleyball team is hoping they'll get a shot at repeating as state champions, what with their coach, Kathy Bresnahan (HELEN HUNT), and star player, captain and all-important setter, Caroline 'Line' Found (DANIKA YAROSH), returning.
When not playfully wondering when her best friend, Kelley Fliehler (ERIN MORIARTY), might show some interest in a boy, Alex (BURKELY DUFFIELD), who's new to the neighborhood, she's trying to boost the spirits of her parents, surgeon Ernie (WILLIAM HURT) and hospitalized Ellyn (JILLIAN FARGEY), who are contending with the latter's terminal cancer diagnosis.
And then tragedy strikes when Caroline is killed while riding a moped home from a party, followed just days later by her mother's death. That not only devastates Ernie, but also Kathy, her team, and the entire community.
From that point on, Kathy tries to rally her team to come together and win for their late star, with much of the pressure falling on Kelley to take over her best friend's spot and leadership role on the team.
