Deep in the heart of football country, Skylar Eckerman (Shaun Sipos) is a star. As quarterback of his high school football team, he's got the skills, the looks, and the girls. Although not quite the hero compared to his next-door neighbor, Walter Pearce (Ray Liotta) is a loving husband, good father and all-round decent family man. Both men behave badly and find themselves at the local jail. As it turns out, Skylar is Walter's neighbour and not Walter's favorite person. A year earlier Skylar broke Walter's daughter, Christine's heart and she took off to pursue an altruistic tree planting lifestyle in the States. The lines are drawn when Walter installs himself right next door at Skylar's house and enlists Skylar's questionable help in getting Deborah back, but the Pearce women make it clear that second chances are earned: and not that easily.
