Life changes overnight for coach John Harrison when his high school basketball team’s state championship dreams are crushed under the weight of unexpected news. When the largest manufacturing plant in town suddenly shuts down and hundreds of families begin moving away, John must come to grips with the challenges facing his family and his team. Urged by the school’s principal to fill-in and coach a sport he doesn’t know or like, John is frustrated and questioning his worth… until he crosses paths with a student struggling with her own journey.

Filled with a powerful mix of faith, a twist of humor, and a ton of heart, the Kendrick Brothers return to theaters with OVERCOMER, their newest feature following FACING THE GIANTS, FIREPROOF, COURAGEOUS, and the #1 box-office hit, WAR ROOM. The inspiring family film stars Alex Kendrick, Priscilla Shirer, Shari Rigby, Cameron Arnett, and introduces Aryn Wright-Thompson.

Opening nationwide on August 23, OVERCOMER dares to leave you filled with hope, inspired to dream, and asks the question: what do you allow to define you?  Watch the trailer.

“I watched Overcomer with my 10 year daughter Amelia.  We loved it.  We laughed a little and cried a lot. Then we were ready to take on the world. Overcomer makes you feel like stopping the excuses and getting on with doing what you need to do to become the person God called you to be: Take the whole family, it will be a powerful experience.”

Steve Arterburn, Founder and Chairman of New Life MinistriesStephen Arterburn, Founder/CEO New Life Ministries

Overcomer is one of those movies that ties together great acting, a story that has a twist you don’t see coming, and a great message of both overcoming and forgiveness, artfully woven together.  It’s a movie that will make you laugh, cry, and come away with more hope in your heart than when you entered the theater with.  The Kendrick brothers have done it again!  Don’t miss it!”
