Black boy Ohe (played by Quinton Aaron) has divorced his parents since childhood and is homeless. However, because of his strong physical condition and athletic talent, he was stupid enough to enter a private Christian high school. Although he scored zero in all subjects, some details made him stand out. After a volleyball game, he took the initiative to clean up the garbage, which attracted the attention of the Taoxi family. So Mrs. Tao Xi (Sandra Bullock) decided to adopt Oher and train him to be a rugby player. Mrs. Taoxi made him feel the warmth of family. At the same time, Tausi’s son also helped Oher train, so that he quickly integrated into the life of the rugby team and constantly stimulated the potential of sports. Finally, in a game, he started to gain the attention of scouts because of his outstanding performance, which brought a series of sweetness and trouble…
