“100 Yards” will be releasing nationwide on March 5.
Sean Patrick Flanery (“Dexter”), Steven Brewis (“Tabloid”), Danielle Rayne (“Switched at Birth”) and Rebecca Lim (“The Pupil”).
In 100 YARDS, Rich Porter (Steven Brewis) had it all: talent, good looks and a bright future playing quarterback for an American football team…then tragedy struck. His mother goes missing while volunteering in a remote area of the Philippines, and Rich’s attempts to find her are in vain. Giving in to despair, he receives more bad news when he is diagnosed with cancer. Then, at the hospital, a young boy with the same condition and a compassionate nurse do their best to bring hope back to the ailing Rich. They show him that the game of his life is a struggle for every yard, but – with the help of faith and friends – it can be won.
