The film includes interviews with Josh, his mother Betty and father Antonio, his football coach Drew Casani at Loyola High School of Los Angeles, and Rams Defensive Back and Loyola High School alumnus, David Long Jr., who paid a visit to Josh during one of his football practices at his former alma mater."
