A boy from a blue-collar family wants to play football at the University of Notre Dame, but has neither the money for tuition nor the grades to qualify for a scholarship. Overcoming his dyslexia thanks to his friend and tutor, D-Bob (Jon Favreau), Rudy Ruettiger (Sean Astin) gains admission to Notre Dame and begins to fight his way onto the school's fabled football team. Rock-solid, immensely entertaining, based-on-fact account of Rudy Ruettiger, a working-class boy intent on realizing his dreams of playing football at Notre Dame.
