A talented college running back fights to regain his health after being stricken with cancer, and grapples with the realization that his NFL dreams may have slipped out of reach in this earnest sports drama from director Mario Van Peebles. Deon (Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson) was on the fast track to playing pro football when his health took a sudden and drastic turn for the worse. Meanwhile, with his body failing and his family falling apart, the once-promising athlete wages his biggest fight at home. Mario Van Peebles, Ray Liota, and Lynn Whitfield co-star.~Jason Buchanan
I'd heard about this film for almost 2 years and was glad to find that even though it did not get theatrical distribution, that it was made available for us to see. This had a great story that was unpredictable as far as tearjerkers are concerned. The performances we very touching, and it's so good to see Mario Van Peebles directing more film. Curtis Jackson surprised the heck out of me with her very good performance, and kudos to Lynn Whitfield, Ray Liotta and the other supporting character actors. I was engrossed from the first frame and have recommended this film to all of my friends.
