The 5th Quarter is a 2010 American film written, directed and produced by Rick Bieber based on actual events.The Abbate family lived a typical family story until the night of Monday February 13, 2006. Luke Abbate was a passenger in a car driven by a teenage driver named Henry. Henry was giving Luke and three other boys a ride home from lacrosse practice when he decided to ramp over a hill and make the car go airborne. He sped up the car to about 90 miles an hour and the car landed in a ditch 70 feet below. Luke suffered severe head trauma and broken bones. All the teens in the car except Zack Barnett were hospitalized. The doctor declared Luke brain dead the next day, Tuesday February 14, 2006. When Mrs. Abbate told the family about taking Luke to the DMV to get his learner's permit 3 months prior, she said that he had asked "What's organ donation?" She explained it to him, and he said "Yes I want to do that." The family made the very difficult decision to donate his organs. Five people received parts of Luke's body parts, including a lady from New York, who received his heart. The family then starts the journey to mourn the loss of Luke. Each family member dealt with it in their own way. The father starts working a lot more and the mom goes into a depression. Jon's grief though was an emotional roller coaster. One day, however, his mom takes him to weight training to try to change his appearance and get back to life again. Driven by the tragic and fatal car crash that took the life of his fifteen year old brother Luke, and wearing Luke's number 5 jersey, Jon Abbate helps to lead the Wake Forest Demon Deacons to the most successful season in school history.
