BURLINGTON, N.C. — Friends, family and strangers are gathering to watch a new movie based on the legacy of a late Burlington football star.

The movie “Find a Way” is loosely based on the life of Harry Cohen, who died in August of 2011.

Cohen was a star player and had one of the best games of his life last year even though he took a hard hit.

Officials say he took a family member’s painkillers and did not wake up.

Many say they hope the movie teaches others a lesson and outlines real life issues and how to deal with tragedy.

The movie will be shown at 6 and 8 p.m. Sunday at Walter Williams High School in Burlington.
