Upside trailer


High school senior Solomon White pretty much has his future as a college lacrosse player laid out for him till a concussion has him seeing everything upside-down. Not knowing how long this condition will take to right itself, Solomon meets lecturer Wren Woods at a support group for the visually impaired (mostly all blind, as is she). With future plans at least on hold, he begins hanging out with her, who - along with Mrs. Buck (Solomon's English teacher) and Prof. Craig Parker (a writing mentor Mrs. Buck arranged for Solomon) - guides Solomon into becoming a man who can make decisions for himself and into considering accepting Christ in his life.


The lacrosse scenes in the film were staged by Richie Meade, head coach for the United States Naval Academy.

Solomon Olds and Jacob Olds from Family Force 5 appear in the film dancing in the scene that features their song, along with Solomon's wife Lauren.

According to the closing credits the film was shot all on location in seven cities in and around Atlanta.


Upside features an original score by Christian Wood.

The soundtrack includes songs by Family Force 5, Drew Holcomb and The Neighbors, and Sony Music Nashville artist Corey Crowder.
