About the Movie

This compelling documentary follows the down-but-not-out Medora, Indiana Hornets varsity basketball team over the course of the 2011 season, capturing the players’ stories both on and off the court. An in-depth, deeply personal look at small-town life, “Medora” is a thrilling, underdog basketball story and an inspiring tale of a community refusing to give up hope despite the brutal odds stacked against them. A FilmBuff Presentation.

Oops forgot Zack...

Also starring Zachary Fish :)

Not too special

Just ok, nothing all that special about this. I watch a lot of documentaries and didn't feel too close to this one. Pretty said little sleepy town, feel sorry for them.


One fo the best sports docs I've seen in a long, long time. Highly recommend!
