After the unexpected demise of a friend and former teammate, retired football superstar Spencer (Dwayne Johnson) ramps up his efforts to build a post-football career in Miami, and feels pressure from Joe (Rob Corddry), his boss at a financial firm, to "monetize his friendships." Meanwhile, recently retired player Charles (Omar Miller), copes with the realities of finding a new job. Talented wide receiver Ricky (John David Washington) is forced to put his pride aside to find a new home. Vernon (Donovan Carter), a player on the rise, finds himself in a tight spot and reaches out to Spencer for help.

Written by Stephen Levinson; directed by Peter Berg.
