A college basketball star jeopardizes his championship hopes as he struggles to rescue his drug-addicted mother while searching for his biological dad.
I have seen quite a few versions of this logline and I was thinking of how to make it work.
As written, your lead has three goals, this is why the logline is having a little trouble.
(1: Save his mother from drugs)
(2: Find his father)
(3: Win a national championship)
but at the same time, your story needs those three goals. That is what the story is about.
As a result, I think you should turn one of those ‘goals’ into the inciting incident.
1: His mother’s overdose causes her to confess to the lead that his father is still alive. (Inciting incident)
2: This sets the story into motions: The lead characters search for his father. (Goal)
3: His search might endanger his chances of winning a national championship. (Stakes)
Possible twist: Maybe his father is someone he knows, maybe a fan of his basketball team.
