This is a powerful and poignant story of an autistic boy who's football coach father was disappointed in him, but the whole family grows as the boy overcomes his disability to become a world-class long distance marathon runner. Much of the film is hilarious, as the boy takes everything hyper literally. But it's also emotionally powerful and contains life-changing spiritual truths without hitting you over the head with them. Not preachy or cheesy at all. Great movie for the whole family.
