Synopsis

America Brown was born and raised in a West Texas town where football is treated more like a religion than a game. Raised by a single mother, America's primary male role model has been his older brother Daniel, who has drilled it into Ricky's head that it's his destiny to be a football star. But America has come to hate football, and especially loathes Bo, the manipulative coach of his high-school team. Desperate to get away from it all, America runs away to New York City, where he seeks refuge with John Cross, a one-time football legend from West Texas who gave up the game to become a Catholic priest. As America looks to find a new life, he finds in Cross a man who is still haunted by his past and smitten with a woman in his congregation, Rosie. America, meanwhile, develops an infatuation of his own with Vera, a pretty but streetwise girl who waits tables at a neighborhood diner.
