Square Zero Films presents SCRUM from award-winning director Thomas Morgan. The documentary follows Frank McKinney, one of the first Black college rugby coaches in the US. Frank faces institutional obstacles as he builds a rugby team from the ground up that defies expectations and breaks down racial and socio-economic barriers at a predominantly white Southern institution.
SCRUM captures Coach McKinney’s journey as he realizes his dream of bringing diversity to the game and opening doors for first-generation college students. Character and good grades are a prerequisite – rugby skills? Optional.
Steadfast in his devotion to his players, Coach McKinney’s personal journey parallels the team’s failures and successes as he navigates his own interpersonal relationships while working toward the championship game.
