Ben Affleck ('Argo', 'Perdida', 'The Town: Ciudad de ladrones') stars in 'The Way Back', a sports drama directed by Gavin O'Connor ('El contable', 'Cuestión de honor', 'Tumbleweeds'). In the film, Affleck plays Jack, a man who had a promising career in basketball, but who threw it all to the trash due to his alcohol addiction and a terrible loss he couldn't move on from. He didn't expect that a second chance would come from his university, who wants him to coach the basketball team, who is not in its best moment. Although at first he is not very convinced, the boys of the team will become a big joy, a reason to try to live past his demons. 'The Way Back' has a script written by Brad Ingelsby ('A Night to Survive', 'The Law of the Strongest', 'The Dynamiter') and in his cast we find Al Madrigal ('Escuela para fracasados', 'Morbius', 'The Map of Tiny Things'), Michaela Watkins ('Sácame del paraíso', 'El plan B', 'La voz de una generación'), Glynn Turman ('Super 8', 'John muere al final', 'The Outlaw Johnny Black'), Janina Gavankar ('The Morning Show', 'True Blood', 'Space Farce'), Brandon Wilson ('Pelé, el nacimiento de una leyenda', 'Beyond the Lights', 'Little Monk') y Will Ropp ('The Fallout', 'Silk Road', 'College') entre otros.
