23 Blast is a feel-good film, based on the amazing true story of Travis Freeman, who was a typical teenager growing up in a small town in Kentucky. His story will inspire you, and truly give you something to cheer for. This uplifting story also won the 2013 Heartland Film Festival’s Audience Choice Award for Narrative Feature.
Travis is a local hero on and off the field. In the fall of 1997, in the prime of his youth, he is unexpectedly stricken with an infection that destroys his optic nerve. He becomes blind overnight. Under the influence of parents who love him, a physical therapist who challenges him, a coach who inspires him, and a best friend who he cannot bear to leave behind, Travis shows us what true bravery is by competing on the gridiron, helping his team advance to the State playoffs.
23 Blast follows Travis and his closest friend Jerry Baker, from the time they meet on the football field as kids through high school. It is only on the football field where they truly connect.The film is about the choices we make, how we handle trials,and how powerful a courageous heart truly is.
23 Blast will give you hope – and the belief that you are capable of so much more than you give yourself credit for. Travis’s story just might inspire you to change your own. Is your faith stronger than your fear? Do you believe you have what it takes to overcome adversity? Let Travis’s story transform you. 23 Blast is more than “another football film.” This is a story of hope, courage, faith, determination, and the will to keep going – even against all odds. My husband and I really enjoyed this movie and urge you go see it!(And yes, I may have cried…) I encourage you to check out 23 Blast, which opens in selected theaters everywhere October 24th.
