Accused of a crime with irrefutable evidence, he lost everything--his career, his reputation, his freedom, and the love of his life. Having served his sentence and never played a down of professional football, he walks out of prison with one goal--to win back his wife, Audrey, whom no one has seen since the trial. He returns to an unwelcoming reception from his hometown only to discover that Audrey has taken shelter from the media and the outside world at a convent. As chance would have it, there she has found a young man with the ability to have the football career Matthew should have had. All he needs is the right coach. Though helping the boy means Matthew violates the conditions of his release and, if discovered, will be forced to return to prison for the rest of his life, he's willing to take this singular chance to prove his innocence and win back Audrey's love"--
