One week before Coach Michael Coleman’s retirement as a successful high school basketball coach and history teacher, he receives a phone call that will change his life.
Danny—a forgotten, former student of his—has committed suicide, and in the letter he left behind, he requested that Coach speak at his funeral. With Coach’s commencement speech at Thompson High School graduation just days away, and dealing with fresh insecurities from his pending life-change, the bad news couldn’t have come at a more inopportune moment. After Danny’s funeral, Coach reflects on his own life and, over the next week, he encounters six people that will help him discover his second day…and the reason he was put on this earth.
