Holden Layfield is a 17-year-old junior and it’s homecoming week in his small Georgia town. The popular, athletic teen is already fielding early scholarships. But Holden has a secret. Over the next two years, Holden fights to keep his mental illness hidden as he morphs from a beloved, small town football player to a lost, self-medicating prophet. Based on a true story, filmmaker Tamlin Hall weaves audiences through Holden’s harrowing tale in this narrative film set in the early 1990s. Running time: 102 minutes.
