Jesus Shuttlesworth is a highly-prized basketball recruit being courted by schools all over the nation. When he starts considering Big State University, the governor, an alum of the school, enlists some help to persuade Jesus to sign. The governor makes a deal with Jesus' father, Jake, who is serving time in prison for accidentally killing Jesus' mother: get Jesus to sign with Big State and get a reduced sentence. The governor lets Jake out of prison for one week to allow him to convince Jesus. The problem is that the relationship between Jesus and Jake is strained. When Jake visits his daughter Mary at her apartment, Jesus comes home to find his dad and immediately wants him gone. The father and son eventually come to accept one another when Jake divulges the terms of his agreement with the governor.
