Plot Synopsis

Pro football star Jake Walker is on pace to set the all-time receiving yards record that will guarantee him a spot in the Hall of Fame. While at training camp, he receives word that his father has suffered a major heart attack. He immediately returns to the small North Carolina hometown he's avoided for nearly 15 years. Memories of glory and regret flood his mind as he returns to the family and friends he abandoned in pursuit of his career. A second unexpected call, this time from his agent, delivers him another crushing blow. His contract is not being renewed amid concerns about his knee. Suddenly, the life he knows is over. Attempting to make the best of the situation, he begins reconnecting with the community that once revered him. Jake is reintroduced to Sarah, his high school sweetheart, and helps his brother take over their father's high school coaching job. He soon begins to see that life is much more than the accumulation of personal stats. But when he's offered a new contract to play for another team, he is forced to decide whether to go back to the career he thought he loved, or stay in town and embrace the people who always believed in him.
