Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"Jonas is captain of his school track team. He runs to win, and his specialty is the fastest race of all, the 100m sprint. Mistakenly entered in the 400m at a track meet, Jonas is angry that he’s not guaranteed a win. When his team also loses the relay race, Jonas unfairly turns on one of his teammates. Jonas’s coach strips him of his captaincy and kicks him off the team until he changes his attitude. Life goes on for Jonas as he goes through the motions of school and training on his own — until he is meets Darren, a vision- and mobility-impaired teen who wants to run a 5k race. Jonas agrees to help Darren train, which means he’s tethered to Darren as he runs. Through working with Darren, Jonas learns a new appreciation for his sport and what it really means to be a winner. By helping train a disabled runner, a competitive teen learns empathy and the value of sport for its own sake."
