Mitch Davis has a long, winning history as The Boys Ranch cross country coach. Admired for his leadership with at risk young men, he is well respected in the area. But, since the loss of his wife five years ago, Coach Davis has not been the same. Not the same coach, the same leader or the same man. In this weakened emotional state, Davis is wooed by a wealthy nearby school just as a new group of troubled kids join his team and need his mentorship. Coach Davis’ commitment to his team begins to wane as his fragile faith in the work he’s doing is put to the test by the attitudes of his new runners. The allure of a less complicated, more lucrative future begins to tempt him. Chaplain Jacobs, Davis’s longtime friend and colleague is fully aware of Mitch’s struggles and reminds him that they are the shepherds of lost sheep, that their work does matter and the kids do want help. He speaks to Mitch as only a close friend can, telling him that if he has become blind to the mission at Boys Ranch, then he should move on. At a crossroads in his work and in his life, Coach Davis must find the strength to heal and to once again find value in the work he's doing.
