Twelve-year-old Ty is devastated when his uncle Gus tells him he has to spend afternoons scrubbing toilets for the family's cleaning service instead of playing on the football team. But when Ty's older brother, Thane, is selected in the NFL draft, the local mob boss takes an interest. He persuades Gus into letting Ty play football in exchange for insider information about Thane's team. All Ty wanted was a chance to succeed like his brother. Now the brothers are caught in the middle of a Mafia betting scheme, and their futures are in jeopardy.
