Jake Shuttlesworth is a prisoner who finds himself temporarily paroled, with the promise of a commuted sentence if he can convince his estranged son, Jesus, the highest ranked High School basketball player in America, to sign with the Governor's alma mater.

At the moment, Jesus is weighing his options -- to accept one of the scholarship offers before him, or take the more lucrative route of turning pro. With a deadline of only one week, Jake and Jesus must somehow reconcile their differences as they make their way towards a surprising turning point -- and the understanding and respect they seek from each other.
