Pro football star Jake Walker is just one season away from setting an all-time receiving record that will guarantee him a spot in the Hall of Fame. But when he gets news that his father has suffered a serious heart attack, Jake leaves training camp and returns to Riverton, the small hometown he’s avoided for nearly 15 years.
Past memories of glory and regret resurface as Jake is forced to reconnect with the family and community he abandoned in pursuit of his career. A call from his agent delivers another crushing blow – Jake’s contract is not being renewed.
Stripped from the thing he cares about most, the real Jake begins to emerge from behind his armor to see that life is more than the accumulation of personal stats. But when he’s offered a lucrative new contract with another team, he must decide whether to go back to the career he thought he loved, or stay in Riverton and embrace the people who have always been there for him.
Game Time Tackling The Past did not disappoint us! We are HUGE fans of Family Movie Night and have seen every single movie from them (and loved them all!) and we had high expectations for this movie and they where met!
This movie tells the touching story of a family who a crisis brings back together. It’s a wonderful story about relationships and working together as a team.
Not only does this movie teach some important lessons, but it also is very fun to watch! Our family loved it! Game Time Tackling The Past moved us to tears, but it also made us laugh! We loved this movie and it gets a thumbs up from us!
