The genre of sports movies is often limited by the scope of the dreams. After all, merely wanting to achieve success at the highest level is limiting in terms of the stakes, since most of us never attain that. But the NEED to make the NFL … as a basic matter of family survival? Such a concept renders this story as an inspirational drama with a sports coating, a spellbinding tale of overcoming adversity to set your loved ones free.
It’s the true-life account of Vernon Turner, born under horrific circumstances and
childhood tragedy. To keep his loved ones from being scattered into various foster homes, he had to will his slight frame to become an embodiment of speed and precision, helped by “an army of angels” along the way and the training wisdom of his long-time idol, the legendary Walter Payton.
Through high school, college and eventually life at the fringes of the NFL, he perseveres through the doubts that he can hold up to the punishment, eventually culminating in a moment of vindication no screenwriter could have conjured. It’s the reason that his autobiography was titled THE NEXT LEVEL: A GAME I HAD TO PLAY. As a child with no conventional options for success in life, Vernon Turner had to chase society’s ultimate brass ring for the money to save his family – which he did in a manner that would light up the silver screen.
"RELENTLESS Journey," screenplay is based off the remarkable and Inspiring Autobiography of Vernon Turner's book: THE NEXT LEVEL: A Game I HAD To Play!

This heart-wrenching and compelling journey is about a young man who turned an IMPROBABLE situation into an unbelievable storybook ending!
