From the looks of things, Solomon White has a well-mapped future. Finish his senior year of high school, select an elite university, continue his lacrosse career, and reap the rewards of success on whichever road life takes him.
But a devastating hit on the lacrosse field leaves his world literally turned upside down. Will he be able to gain the perspective needed to face his new reality?
UPSIDE provides a fresh look at life through the eyes of Soli (Randall Bentley, "Heroes"), a young athlete struggling to discover where he's headed, both figuratively and literally. Viewing the world upside down is a challenge few will ever face, but that hardly is the extent of Soli's pressing concerns.
He has trouble at home with his mom, he's trying to end his relationship with his girlfriend, and he has to come to grips with a teacher that thinks he can be much more than he wants to be. Suddenly, Soli's senior year looking nothing like he imagined it would be.
Add in Wren (Leah Sims), an unlikely love interest with a strong faith in God, and Soli must take a new look at everything he believes in.
Can Soli win the heart of Wren, who happens to be blind? Can he believe in something he can't see? Will he find a new direction for his life, even if his eyesight never returns to normal?
When you can't trust your eyes, you still have your voice. This unique story is an inspiring reminder that when life gets you down, there's always an UPSIDE.
