Plot Synopsis:

On October 15, 1988, Notre Dame hosted the University of Miami in what would become one of the greatest games in college football history. It was tradition vs. swagger, the No. 4-ranked Fighting Irish versus the No. 1-ranked Hurricanes, one coaching star, Lou Holtz, versus another, Jimmy Johnson. But the name still attached to the contest came from a t-shirt manufactured by a few Notre Dame students: Catholics vs. Convicts. Director Patrick Creadon (Wordplay, I.O.U.S.A.) explores the deeper narrative as a Notre Dame senior at the time, a close friend to the young men in the middle of the Catholics vs. Convicts controversy (Joe Fredrick and Pat Walsh) and a fellow classmate of the player behind center for the Fighting Irish (quarterback Tony Rice). The coaches and players open up about the fight that started the game, the highly debatable calls that are still being talked about and the insensitive aspects of the irresistibly popular t-shirt. As compelling as the tale of Notre Dame s dramatic victory is, the backstory is just as riveting.
