    • Synopsis
    • Miles Walton, age 17, divides his time between the exciting new world of AOL chat rooms and the movie theater where he works. He bides his time until he can go away to college in Chicago to study filmmaking as he has always dreamed. One morning his father passes away unexpectedly, revealing a secret affair with a local girl, which ate up all of their family savings. Miles can no longer afford to go to college.
      Miles looks at the few remaining college scholarships, and finds there’s only one left in Chicago: to the Men’s Volleyball team at Loyola University. Because his high school doesn’t have a men’s team, Miles tries out for the girl’s team. When brash outspoken head coach Leslie Wayne notices Miles’s natural athletic ability, she puts him on the team immediately — regardless of state regulations. Miles's soft-spoken mother Pam (an English teacher at his school) joins a local widow support group where she meets Lloyd O’Brien, the new school district Superintendent. Lloyd asks Pam out on a date, and they begin a quiet relationship. With Miles on the girl’s volleyball team, they destroy their first opponent. Other teams begin forfeiting out of protest.
      Miles’ plans of attending College are almost derailed by threats of suspension from the School Board. He must fight against the institutions in order to chase his dreams and better his life.
