The synopsis: Life changes overnight for coach John Harrison (Alex Kendrick) when his high school basketball team and state championship dreams are crushed under the weight of unexpected news. When the largest manufacturing plant shuts down and hundreds of families leave their town, John questions how he and his family will face an uncertain future. After reluctantly agreeing to coach cross-country, John and his wife, Amy (Rigby), meet an aspiring athlete who’s pushing her limits on a journey toward discovery. Inspired by the words and prayers of a new-found friend, John becomes the least likely coach helping the least likely runner attempt the impossible in the biggest race of the year.

Ben Davies, who also starred in the hit Courageous, co-stars as Coach Myers with Jack Sterner listed as Ethan Harrison.

Overcomer was filmed in June and July on location in Columbus, Georgia.

“We are glad to have filmed this new feature in the charming and beautiful city of Columbus, Georgia. We felt so welcome and truly appreciate the many businesses, schools and loving pastors and churches who came alongside us to support our efforts,” said Stephen Kendrick.

Overcomer arrives in theaters next year, August 23, 2019.
