Based on a true story. Akeem Swift dreams of one day becoming a Pro Football player and freeing his mother from a life of poverty. After training for months, he receives an email with the opportunity of a lifetime, an invite-only private workout taking place in five days. During this week Akeem's confidence is shattered, and his determination turns into anxiety sending him into panic attacks. As he continues to grow more and more anxious he wrestles with self-doubt due to past disappointments. He studies, works tirelessly, relentlessly day and night to prepare for Saturday.
