Xavier, a star football player, finds his nigh starting off badly when his girlfriend’s husband charges up a flight of stairs after him and forces him to climb out onto a fire escape in order to avoid confrontation.
The night is equally bad for Grace when her horrendous date assaults her, triggering her to make a mad escape. Xavier thinks it’s getting better when they meet, but things only seem to get worse after his night with her.
He finds himself unable to play ball and caught in between his matchmaking mother and sister, and a paternity suit. In the midst of his teetering life, Xavier is facing an identity crisis that he continually ignores by relying on friends and family.
With Grace and her ex-convicted sister in the fray, Xavier soon learns that someone has to be brave enough to face the shadows of his pain in order to save him from further disaster.
