Kyle Bishop (Lance Gross) dreamt of a life of luxury and the means to take care of his family when he joined the NFL. But, life took an unexpected turn, bringing Kyle back to his hometown. In high school, Kyle's major focus was his one true love, Faith (Nicole Beharie, Shame, American Violet), but his dedication to the NFL left her and their relationship behind. Now, caught between the demands of the career he's always dreamed of and the single mother who holds his heart, Kyle must make the most important decision of his life.
