At the request of his adolescent granddaughters, older Mike (Ralph Mauriello) reminisces about winning and losing his the love of his life, his wife, Beth (Alexis Barone [young], Connie Lamothe [older]), in this frame story directed by Shannon Lanier and Robbie Soto. In his recollection of his high school days as the captain of the debate team, he and his friends Mark Dominique Spencer, Andrew Robert D. Mason, Mike John Stansfields, and Edna Lauren Julia Ritter (who has a crush on Mike), show up the homecoming king/captain of the football team/school bully/big man on campus, Jake Brad Masters. Shy Mike must overcome his own bashfulness to win Beth's heart, and he manages this despite her popular and violence-prone boyfriend Jake, her snobby popular-girl friends, a less-than-loyal buddy, and his own insecurities. Fortunately, he has a true friend in Mark, who is both his counselor and his staunch defender.
