Sean Payton has coached the New Orleans Saints during their win at the Super Bowl. He’s at the top of his game and doing extremely well, until one day he’s accused of having his players injure players on other teams. Sean decides to go back to his home and see his middle school son, Connor, playing on the football field. Connor isn’t exactly pleased to see his dad, because his dad has not spent much time with him after the divorce.
Deciding this is the best time to reconnect with his son, Sean decides to coach Connor’s football team. The team itself has some potential, but they’ve never won a game and, in fact, lose by huge numbers. Sean sees Connor’s stepfather trying to connect with Connor, and he feels like he has done his son a disservice by not being present enough in his life.
Will Sean be able to help this failing football team? Will Connor be able to forgive his father and build a relationship?
