Holden Layfield is a 17-year-old junior and it’s homecoming week in his small Georgia town. The smart and athletic teen is already fielding early scholarships. Life is grand. Except for one little thing… Holden has a secret and it’s about to rear its ugly head. Over the next two years, Holden fights to keep his mental illness hidden as he morphs from a beloved, small town Georgia football player to a lost, self-medicating prophet.
Based on a true story, Holden weaves audiences through his harrowing tale in this film set in the early 1990s.
