In the meantime, MTV describes the movie this way:

In a city where economic uncertainty has eroded the spirit of its inhabitants, nearly everyone — players and pastors, coaches and boosters, family and fans — seeks comfort in the religion of the Friday night ritual, where the unfulfilled dreams of an entire community are shifted onto the shoulder pads of a team of high-school athletes.
