She dared to dream. They dared to believe.
From the inspiring true story comes the tale of one woman who just wanted to make a difference and wound up making history! When Coach Cathy Rush arrives at tiny Immaculata College, the women’s basketball team has no budget, no uniforms and no gym. Refusing to give up, Cathy finds help from a young nun named Sister Sunday. Together, their relentless drive reignites the team’s spirit and the Mighty Macs start conquering bigger and better-funded schools. As financial troubles rock Immaculata, the Macs charge into the championships against all odds.
Can the Mighty Macs save their school with one last long shot at victory? You’ll stand up and cheer for the heartwarming, incredible season that made the real Cathy Rush a Basketball Hall of Fame legend!

“An inspiring, family-friendly, feel-good film!”
— Jane Wilson, The Georgia Bulletin
“A sentimental, uplifting charmer! Has so much heartfelt energy and uplift! Like Rudy, Hoosiers, Rocky, and Moneyball!”
— Stephen Schaefer, Boston Herald
“If you loved Hoosiers and Rudy, you will love The Mighty Macs!”
— Rudy Ruettiger (the real-life Rudy)
Based on a real-life underdog’s tale, it rah-rahs the importance of perseverance and grind-it-out determination. And it inspects the impact a coach can have on the lives of young players. But that’s not what sets it apart from so many other sports-minded movies. There’s more to enjoy here than just slick basketball court mechanics and the echoed squeak of sneakers on hardwood: There are some solid spiritual three pointers.
— Bob Hoose, Plugged In (Focus on the Family)
“…a sports story that deserved to be told.”
— Neil Genzlinger, The New York Times
