Paul Black's striking debut is a poignant and inspiring coming-of-age-tale with a remarkable cast that entranced film festival audiences nationwide. With doubts about his future and little experience of life outside of Texas football, Ricky "America" Brown (Ryan Kwanten, The Junction Boys,TVs "Summerland") ditches town and heads for the wilds of NYC, seeking guidance from his school's last hero. The superstar quarterback and high school senior finds the reclusive John Cross (Hill Harper, TV's "CSI: NY") is now a priest who is questioning his current lot in life. Both are inspired by women: Ricky meets the fiery Vera (Natasha Lyonne, American Pie), while John consummates a sinful relationship with the religious Rose (French star ?lodie Bouchez, TVs "Alias"). Haunted by flashbacks of the death of his brother Daniel (Michael Rapaport, Hitch, TVs "The War at Home"), Ricky seemingly wants to leave his past behind, even if it means abandoning his caring mother (Karen Black, Five Easy Pieces). With training camp just days away, his brutal old-school coach flies to the city in pursuit of America Brown. But will the coach find him before he can find himself?
