Based on a true story, the 2011 film, The Fifth Quarter, is a sports inspirational/drama which recounts the saga of Luke Abbate, a high school football player who dies as the result of injuries suffered in an automobile accident just four days prior to his 16th birthday.
Luke's older brother, Jon, a linebacker for Wake Forest University, is deeply affected by the tragedy, and along with his family, establishes the Luke Abbate Fifth Quarter Foundation to educate young drivers of the dangers of drinking and driving.
Luke's memory plays an integral role in inspiring Jon's 2006 Demon Deacon team, which went on to win 11 games (a school record) and winning the ACC championship.
The Fifth Quarter stars Ryan Merriman, Andie MacDowell and Aidan Quinn. Rick Bieber co-wrote and directed.
