Based on a true story, The Miracle Season adds a worthy title to the catalog of sports films, inspirational or otherwise. It’s refreshing for its novel subject—a girls’ sports team.
The film opens in the fall of 2011 as the defending Iowa girls’ state volleyball champions from Iowa City West High School start their season. Caroline “Line” Found (Danika Yarosh) captains the Lady Trojans and plays setter, a volleyball team’s most important position. Line, an exuberant spirit, also captures the heart of every person she meets—students, teachers, and townsfolk.
