Jason Prayer (Webber) doesn’t care about football, but that’s just one reason he’s an outsider in the football-obsessed Nebraska city where he grew up. To escape his dead-end existence, Jason retreats into classic old movies… until he meets the beautiful and mysterious Frances (Deschanel). But when Jason learns that Frances isn’t as she appears, he makes some drastic decisions in the explosive climax of this drama about one man’s search, against all odds, for The Good Life.
