HIGH EXPECTATIONS is the film debut for pop singer Ally Brooke (formerly of the girl group Fifth Harmony). Brooke also performs the title track for the movie.
The film also stars Emmy and Golden Globe-winning actor Kelsey Grammer, rising star Taylor Gray and legendary U.S. Goalkeeper, World Cup Champion and Olympic Gold medalist Brianna Scurry, who portrays the first-ever female head coach of a professional men’s soccer team. Directed by Jonathan Southard and Christopher D. White, the film is produced by Kristinn Thordarson and White, of CDW Films.
Jack Davis (Taylor Gray) finds himself adrift after his father, the legendary Coach Davis (Kelsey Grammer), cuts him from his renowned soccer club, the Carolina Mantis. Estranged from his father, at odds with his brother, Mantis All-Star goalie Sam (Adam Aalderks), and desperate for purpose, Jack turns to his ex-girlfriend Sophia (Ally Brooke). Jack is inspired by her tough love and unwavering pursuit to become a recording artist. He tackles his depression and takes one last shot at his lifelong dream by trying out for a rival soccer club. Can Jack finally prove that he is worthy of his dad’s love? Can he forgive and believe in second chances?
