Continuum and The 100‘s Richard Harmon switches gears tonight for UP Television in If I Had Wings, a family film about overcoming high school adversity.

Here’s the synopsis: Seventeen year old Alex Taylor (Harmon) dreams of flying. He also dreams of running for his high school’s cross-country track team. Both dreams seem equally out of reach as Alex has been blind since the age of two. Determined to run anyway, Alex practices with his father, Probation Officer Geoff Taylor. When Geoff can no longer run with Alex, he pairs him with budding delinquent Brad Coleman (Blackstone‘s Jaren Brandt Bartlett), one of Alex’s classmates, in a plea deal to keep him out of jail and in school. Despite a rocky start, an unlikely friendship forms.
