Mikey Carmello loves football. Appointed manager for a high school team, Mikey has but just one dream in life-to score a touchdown for his beloved Wolves. Unfortunately, everyone thinks it is too risky for Mikey to play football-he has Down syndrome. But as football season ends, Mikey has no idea that someone is about to give him a break from the rain.
Mikey and the high school football coach share an uncommon relationship. With Mikey's special wish in mind, the coach begins to develop a plan to form an organized football league so that Mikey can safely score the touchdown he has always wanted to achieve. But when Mikey's father is suddenly killed in a car accident, the coach willingly steps into a father role and begins teaching Mikey how everything is possible in life-if he just believes. As the coach and Mikey step into the future together, both are forever changed by their inspirational journey through adversity, societal labeling, and a victory like no other.
A Break in the Rain is a story about how a coach chooses to be a champion for a little boy with a simple wish and lifts himself up in the process.
