Rick Penning (Sean Faris) is an academic slacker struggling to impress his father, a rugby coach.  After an alcohol-fueled bash, Rick wrecks his car and nearly kills his girlfriend in the process.  The incident lands him a one-year jail sentence.

In jail Rick's guidance councilor attempts to harness the delinquent's rugby skills to accelerate his rehabilitation.  This eventually pits the teen against his own father and former teammates, in what perhaps will help Rick shed his bratty past and start anew.
