During the off-season, Bruce learns that he is terminally ill, and his best friend Henry is determined to be the one person there for him during his last season with the club. Throughout the course of the season, Henry and his teammates attempt to deal with Bruce's impending illness, all the while trying to make his last year a memorable one.
