In the blue-collar Ohio town of Massillon, the most important thing is high school football -- and the frenzy around the local team, the Tigers, is almost cult-like. Former Massillon resident Kenneth Carlson's documentary follows the three stars of the 1999 Tigers team as they deal with problems such as personal injuries and the pressures of their economically depressed town's high expectations.
