On the streets of Hollywood, a recently retired NFL player is saved from scandal by a homeless veteran. With their "glory days" behind them, the two men bond in search of purpose and identity; but when the vet loses another Marine from his unit, will this new brotherhood be enough to save him from embarking on his own suicide mission? Will Phillips thinks he's ready for his first year as a 'civilian' since retiring from the NFL. But the truth is, the league retired him. No one wants the journeyman's services and like even the greatest players, Will is replaced by someone stronger, faster, and above all - younger. Being a Heisman Trophy candidate and a first round pick has given Will a decent ego, which was kept somewhat in-check over his career due to injuries, coaching changes, bad teams - but mostly by his wife, Tracy, and more recently their daughter Angel. Now that he's out of the NFL, though, Will's ego is under attack, and his actions are becoming reckless. When a night of liquor and pills leads to driving his car through a tree, Will is saved by a man on a similar path.
