"Touchback" is a football movie that stars Kurt Russell as a coach of a high school football team with a star quarterback who seriously injures himself in a critical game, thereby ending his chance at a college and possible pro football career. Or so he thought. Years later, the disabled former player gets another chance by somehow going back in time and reliving his youth and making the decisions that could change his entire life.
The movie's press release states:
Former high school football star turned farmer and family man, Scott Murphy (Brian Presley) finds himself with a unique opportunity to revisit his glory days during the Ohio State championship game where he permanently injured his knee in a game-winning play. Given a second shot at his destiny, Scott seeks counsel from Coach Hand (Kurt Russell), Scott's longtime mentor on and off the field, to help him decide whether to let his fate unfold, or follow a path that will change his future.
Written and Directed by Don Handfield, Touchback also stars Melanie Lynskey (Up In the Air, Sweet Home Alabama, CBS' "Two and a Half Men"), Marc Blucas (Knight and Day, The Jane Austen Book Club) and Christine Lahti (Smart People, CBS' "Chicago Hope").
