After a plane crash claims the lives of 75 people (consisting mostly of the Marshall University football team and coaching staff), the grief stricken townsfolk want to discontinue the school's athletic program. But the surviving team captain Nate Ruffin (Anthony Mackie) can't let the sport die, so he persuades the university president (David Strathairn) to hire a new coach (Matthew McConaughey), whose job description will include rebuilding the team and the broken community.
