With no cash and staring a dead-end future right in the face, Miles searches desperately for a way out, coming across a volleyball scholarship program that exists between his high school and the well-regarded Loyola University in Chicago. The catch? The only volleyball team that exists at his school is a girls' team.

Your alarm!

Don't piss me off!


Hey there, easy on that stuff.

It's fine.

You all set for today?

Senior year!

Last time you get to say that.

Until college.

The only people who

care about senior year

are gonna live here

forever anyways.

So what's the big deal?

You don't know that.

I can't wait to be in Chicago.

Well, how do you plan

on getting to Chicago?

We don't need to talk

about this right now.

Okay, but I'm

definitely going to

Columbia college in Chicago.

It's a really good film school.

How 'bout when you need

a real job after school?

I'll get one in film.


we don't wanna be

late today sweetie pie.

There's a campus tour

in Chicago next month

and you'll see how cool it is.

Just not on a school

night sweetheart.

Yeah, Chicago's

three hours away.

I ain't driving that.

Why not?

If I were you,

I'd be thinking

more along the lines

of Springfield

community college.

We're having meatloaf tonight.

Will you be

joining us this time?

You ready?

I just need my backpack.



Let's go.

Have a good first day.

You too.

Ah, welcome back miles.


Are you our av guy

again this year?


All right, the next

Steven Spielberg.

Don't forget about

the little people.

You got it.

Okay quiet down everybody.

Good morning.

As you all know my

name is Mrs. Walton.

Welcome to senior English.

I hope that you all

enjoyed your break

and that you are ready

and raring to learn!

'Cause I sure am.

Let's get started with role.

"Miller in the morning"

with me, Scott Miller.

Cathy Voltmer is over there,

happy Saturday morning to you.

Big ticket giveaway coming up.

If you're into trucks I have

the perfect thing for you.

We're giving away

a pair of tickets

to the 37th annual

Midwest truck show

being held at the prairie

capital convention center

here in Springfield...


You okay?

Oh no!

Oh my god!

Are you Pam Walton?

Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes.

Hi, I'm Dr. Meade.

Oh good.

Our EMT's worked on

Ron at your residence.

Then I tried myself,

but as far as we could tell,

he was gone before he got here.

We did all we could

for him Mrs. Walton.

I'm so sorry.

That can't be.

He has an upper

respiratory infection.

We were just at the

doctor last week,

he's taking medication for it

and he said he's

feeling so good.

Well we think that a hole

had formed in his heart

which slowly filled the

lining up with blood.

And when it got too

full it just burst.

Can you check the files?

For what?

Well maybe you could

call Dr. Spalding's office

and they can send you their

reports of what we all...


Discussed last Tuesday...


To the x-rays.

He just said dad's

heart exploded.

He's dead.

I'll give you folks a minute.


He's dead, mom.

It's okay.

Ron is remembered by

his loving wife, Pamela,

of 23 years.

He is remembered by his

talented son, miles.

By grateful friends

and relatives.

This is a very hard

day for us here.

Every one of us gathered today

has been touched by Ron

in one way or another.

Well that was a nice service.

Yeah it was.

It's funny how two

people change over time.

Well I mean that he was so kind,

and sweet, and caring.

Your dad used to be so much fun.

I was so in love with him.

These changes,

they happen so slowly.

And then one day you

wake up and you realize

you're two totally

different people.

Your dad just got

so controlling.

He kept tightening

his grip on me.

I felt so cut off.

And I knew he was

fooling around on me.

I guess you probably

knew it too, huh?
