“American Underdog tells the inspirational true story of Kurt Warner, who went from a stockboy at a grocery story to a two-time NFL MVP, Superbowl champion, and Hall of Fame quarterback,” reads the official synopsis. “The film centers around Warner’s unique story and years of challenges and setbacks that could have derailed his aspirations to become an NFL player — but just when his dreams seemed all but out of reach, it is only with the support of his wife, Brenda and the encouragement of his family that Warner perseveres and finds the strength to show the world the champion that he already is inside. American Underdog is an inspirational story that demonstrates that anything is possible when you have faith, family and determination.”
