“Winning Favor” is a family film based on the inspirational true story of a group of neighborhood friends in a small Iowa town. While growing up, the boys play basketball together in driveways and tournaments. They eventually go on to play ball at different high schools. Both schools simultaneously produce state championship teams.
Despite the odds, the boys, their teammates and coaches are inspired by a dream and guided by a mission. They learn the importance of friendship, family and community in helping to accomplish their goals.
The movie stars Matt Ashford from NBC’s “Days of Our Lives,” Bonnie Johnson from “The Great Debaters” and Candice Rose from “ER” and “CSI.”
Durham previously directed the award-winning “The Prairie Pirates,” which premiered in 2007. His wife, Donna, and Orange City resident Anita Bomgaars are the producers of the movie. “Winning Favor” was shot last summer in Orange City.
