Grace and Jackson clash every time they cross paths. An aspiring political journalist, Grace wants nothing to do with the school’s arrogant, womanizing quarterback. Jackson, who hides his true ambitions behind the rough exterior of a football jock, can’t seem to look past this girl’s insecure and obstinate personality.
When Grace is forced to report on Jackson's season for the school's paper, she must get to know Jackson - all sides of him, not just the side he shows his devoted fans. Despite the backlash they’re receiving from others regarding their newfound friendship, they find their time together is not what they expected.
As the pair forge an unlikely friendship, a debilitating football accident leaves Jackson unable to play; he's a cast aside hero now reliant on booze and pills. Will their steadfast belief and acceptance in one another be enough to hold this pair together, or will both of their lives go spiraling out of control?
