Based on a true story, football phenom Allen Allen, turns down a football scholarship from University of Hawaii, to everyone's surprise, to play volleyball. He is torn in choosing his own path over those set by others and prove to everyone he made the right choice.
Coming from humble beginnings, Allen Allen, nicknamed the 'A-Bomb', earned the name while playing volleyball for the University of Hawaii. Initially, Allen received a scholarship to play football despite playing only one year of varsity in high school, but turned it down to pursue his new found love, volleyball. With only one year of high school volleyball experience, Allen earned a spot on the UH Warrior's volleyball squad. The 'A-Bomb' broke numerous school records, both offensively and defensively, and helped push the men's program into the forefront of men's volleyball, transforming them into a powerhouse organization.
After leading the Warrior's to national prominence, Allen moved to San Diego to train with the USA National Team, where he would compete in over 200 international matches throughout the world.
As the 1992 Barcelona Olympic Games were closing in, and a third straight gold medal at stake, Allen was unexpectedly cut prior to the games to make way for the returning veterans. The US won the bronze medal in those Olympics and the media scrutinized the team results. An open tryout was held to select the best players for the next Olympic Games. Allen returned from a hiatus and was objectively selected from a panel of coaches to be the cornerstone for the rebuilding team.
In between all of this, is the untold struggle Allen faced with his family. Allen was the oldest son a strict Samoan pastor. He went against his family's wishes of becoming a pastor to pursue his dream of being a volleyball star.
