"The 5th Quarter," which was shot and based in the Triad, is now playing in theatres across the southeast region.
The movie was filmed in Forsyth, Guiford, Davie and Davidson Counties in 2008.
It is based on the true story of Jon Abbate who helped lead the Wake Forest Demon Deacons to the most successful season in school history.
The victory came after the death of Abbate's 15-year-old brother. Abbate dedicated the season to his brother's memory and changed his jersey number to honor him.
The Piedmont Triad Film Commission helped Director Rick Bieber find local crew, resources and locations so the entire story could be filmed in the region.
The movie stars Ryan Merriman, Aidan Quinn and Andie MacDowell.
