This is an American sports drama that was released by Buena Vista Pictures and is based on a true story. A newly appointed African-American coach and his high school team begin their first season as a racially integrated unit. The film subtly explores social topics, such as racism, discrimination and athletics in contemporary society, set to an American pop culture music soundtrack. The only original song, “Titan Spirit”, was the warm-up song for Barack Obama’s victory speech in 2008. The film received such accolades as BET Award for Best Actor and the Political Film Society Award for Human Rights.
