After several years in the playing professional football, 25 year-old Kyle Bishop (played by Gross) is released from his fourth team in three years and returns to his home town, broke and at a complete loss about what he will do for a living. After an initially cold reception, Kyle reconnects with Faith Davis (played by Beharie), his old high school sweetheart. Ready to leave football far in the past, Kyle gets a job at a local gym and starts planning a new life with Faith and her young son, Von. However, when Kyle unexpectedly gets a lucrative offer from another professional team, and the father of Faith’s son, Rell, tries to win his way back in her life, he is torn about what path to take.
