The Frontier Boys is the story of four high school boys whose undefeated basketball season and friendship are threatened after a drive-by shooting leaves one of them in a coma, and one of them with a secret.
Brent Fencett, Jed Bracken, and T.J. Lewis are star players on the Charlevoix High School Basketball team; Jackson Carlson is their most obnoxious fan. They are unbeaten on the court and inseparable off it – until Brent gets caught up in his older brother’s mixed up life. The consequences of Brent’s choice leave T.J. in the hospital, and Brent’s soul in turmoil.
As Jed and Jackson shed light into the mystery behind the drive-by shooting that has put T.J. in a coma, a conflicted Brent seeks to bury the truth in the shadows. Jed and Jackson must choose a course of action between standing by in despair or chasing down doubtful leads. Brent has to choose between loyalty to his brother or joining his friends’ quest for the truth.
With performances by Big Kenny (formerly of Big & Rich), Grammy Award winner Rebecca St. James, former Olympic boxer Earthquake Kelley and a cast of young talent, The Frontier Boys is classic storytelling that still breaks through in the midst of a post-modern world.
