It's 1999, the beginning of senior year, and 17-year-old Miles (Tim Boardman, "Unbreakable Kimmy.  Schmidt") cannot wait to start film school in Chicago. But when his f. r suddenly dies of a heart attack, Miles discovers that the patriarch has squandered the family's entire savings on his mistress, leaving the teen and his mother Pam (Molly Shannon, "Saturday Night Live") without a dime. Desperate to leave his small-town life, Miles happens upon a volleyball scholarship for Loyola College. The trouble is, his high school doesn't have a boys' volleyball team . . . but it does have a girls' team. Citing the legality of Title IX—which prohibits federal exclusion based on gender—he becomes the latest member of the Pondley Warriors, but it's not long before parents and coaches alike rise up in protest of his participation, putting his college dreams in jeopardy. Based on a true story and featuring supporting work from a perfectly cast bevy of '90s actors—Missi Pyle (Galaxy Quest), Paul Reiser ("Mad About You"), Yeardley Smith ("The Simpsons"), Ethan Phillips ("Star Trek: Voyager"), and Malcolm Gets ("Caroline in the City") fill out the ranks—Miles is a gentle, sweet tale in which two people, a mother and a son, learn what it takes to be independent.
