Eric Lazard (Brett Dalton), a heartbroken former college football star is at a crossroads: does he continue to pursue his long-shot dream of playing professional football, or does he start the next phase of his life, and apply to law school? As he struggles with this decision, Eric, along with his longtime girlfriend, Colleen (Emily Atac), visits his cousin in Florence. There, to his surprise, he gets involved with the ancient local sport of Calcio Storico, a dangerous Florentine sport as well as a local woman, Stefania (Alessandra Mastronardi). Soon, Eric discovers that everything that he had assumed about his life is about to change.
