The faith-based film “Overcomer” surpassed all expectations during its opening weekend with an impressive $8.2 million from just 1,723 screens across the country.

The latest project from Alex and Stephen Kendrick, “Overcomer” tells the story of high school basketball coach John Harrison. He and his team face an uncertain future when their town’s largest manufacturing plant shuts down unexpectedly.

As hundreds of people move away, John reluctantly agrees to coach cross-country, a sport he doesn’t even like. His outlook soon changes when he meets Hannah Scott, an unlikely runner who pushes herself to the limit. Inspired by the words and prayers of a new friend, John starts to train Hannah for the biggest race of her young life.

“We are glad to have filmed this new feature in the charming and beautiful city of Columbus, Georgia. We felt so welcome and truly appreciate the many businesses, schools and loving pastors and churches who came alongside us to support our efforts,” said Stephen Kendrick, the film’s co-writer and producer.
