Hoovey

Rating:
★★★★★
Life can change in a split second. Something that becomes true for Eric "Hoovey" Elliott, when the promising high school basketball player collapses on the court during a training session. At the hospital, doctors discover a life-threatening brain tumor. Hoovey will survive the high-risk surgery, but at what cost? Can he relearn to walk, read, even to see clearly? The road to recovery is long, and meanwhile the overwhelming medical bills threaten to undo everything his parents, Jeff and Ruth, have taken a lifetime to build. With seemingly no one to turn to—but with tenacity and love born of faith—an entire family regains its footing. Hoovey learns to read again, to dribble and shoot a basketball and, finally, stepping out in faith, he’s back on court for another shot at his dream.
