FILM SYNOPSIS: Joe Conahey (Drew Waters, Friday Night Lights), is a small-town high school basketball coach whose Christian faith is tested by an unsuccessful season and the intense pressure that results. The family’s two star sons – the older, diligently hardworking brother Matt (Chad Halbrook, Brotherhood) and the younger, naturally-gifted Josh (Tom Maden, According To Jim) – are separated when Josh selfishly transfers to a powerhouse school hundreds of miles away. His previous team’s top player, Josh finds difficulty adjusting to the big-city program, tempted as he is by girls, alcohol and stardom – and is subsequently expelled. Only through the power of prayer and forgiveness can the troubled “Prodigal Son” make his way back into the arms of his loving father and find redemption for his family and his team.

It's a hot summer day in Midwest Texas, and in the middle of a small river that runs through the town of Utopia [yep, it's a real town], Robert Duvall and Lucas Black are working hard to get a fly-fishing scene just right for their movie SEVEN DAYS IN UTOPIA. The air is still, the trees are tall and green, and no fish are jumping into their boat.
