Synopsis

The story of Mike, a college football player who knowingly took a bad hit which left him paralyzed from the waist down. Through the course of four quarters (timed out onstage on a scoreboard), Mike relives the moment (with the help of a squad of football players/dancers onstage) over and over until he’s ready to face the secret he’s been hiding. Hinderaker brings his love-hate relationship with football into conversation with other themes: repressed homosexuality, the narrow macho mindset, the danger of living in the past, and the emotional and physical difficulty of rehabilitation.
