About the film:
In February, 2006, young Luke Abbate accepted a ride home from a fellow student following his high-school team practice. In a severe case of irresponsible and reckless teen-age driving, and over the objections of Luke and the other young passengers, the driver lost control of the car at nearly 90 miles-per-hour, spinning off a narrow road and landing in an embankment some seventy feet below. Luke suffered irreparable brain damage, and died in the hospital two days later - just four days before his sixteenth birthday.

When will 5th Quarter be available for viewing in our state? We saw it advertised on GMC or Hallmark Channel and have been searching for it in theaters in our area.

I am an extra in this movie and I do not have words to express what a wonderful, heartfelt, extraordinary movie this is. I have such empathy for
Luke's family. I feel strongly that this movie will help other families deal with their grief and hopefully, teenagers will benefit from this tragic event.
I can't tell you how much it means to me to be a part of this real life film
