Rick Dockery is an NFL quarterback who can't catch a break. One huge mistake makes him a national laughing stock overnight, and no team will touch him.
Playing for Pizza
But all Rick knows is football, and he needs to find a team. Against all odds, Rick gets his break - as star quarterback for the Panthers... of Parma, Italy.
Playing for Pride
Rick doesn't speak a word of Italian, and the crowds there aren't exactly NFL-standard. But football americano is about more than fame, and home comes in the most unlikely of packages.
