Description of Miles From Nowhere by Vivendi
A high school football star clashes with his coach and his father when he joins the track team to accomplish a goal set by his late best friend. When John is killed in a car accident, Cameron (Andrew Lawrence) blames himself for the tragedy, and vows to accomplish his friend's goal of setting a new record on the mile run. Cameron's altruistic mission is jeopardized, however, when he runs into opposition from both his father (Treat Williams) and his coach, who feel that may be throwing away a future in football by switching sports at such an inopportune time. But the harder they work to convince Cameron he's wrong, the sharper the young athlete's focus and determination becomes.
