A Warrior's Heart is a 2011 romantic/sports drama film directed by Michael F. Sears and starring Kellan Lutz and Ashley Greene. The film is based on a storyline and screenplay written by the author Martin Dugard.
Star Lacrosse player Conor Sullivan (Kellan Lutz) is not excited about moving to an unknown town and being the new kid at high school. He has a new love interest Brooklyn (Ashley Greene), but he struggles to find a meaning to his life.
Conor's Marine father Seamus (Chris Potter) is redeployed into Iraq where he dies in combat leaving Conor in shock and denial as he starts acting out in self-destructive ways. This greatly worries his mother Claire (Gabrielle Anwar). There is also a violent on-field clash with a long-time nemesis (Chord Overstreet) and a vandalism incident that lands him in a jail cell and finally gets him kicked off the team. To regain his obvious passion for the sport, he goes for arduous training in a wilderness Lacrosse camp. The camp is under the tutelage of his dead father's old combat buddy, Sgt. Major Duke Wayne (Adam Beach), who opens Conor's eyes to the true meaning of maturity, sportsmanship and manhood.
