The story begins as one man scores a goal which catapults him from relative obscurity into the limelight, with all of the pressures that this brings. He meets a girl only to discover that she has been missing, presumed dead for a year. He then has to cope with adulation turning to hatred as a result.
He is sacked from his job, abused by the media and public alike, and then begins a journey to prove his innocence. Along the way he finds true love, discovers himself and re-evaluates the real purpose of life. During this journey he helps to bring down a criminal gang and learns about the charities involved in working to stop people trafficking and the sex trade.
He has the chance to put all the lessons he has learned into action when he becomes player manager for the team and signs up to help a worthy cause involving family, friends and workmates in putting something back into society.
From the start with the excitement of the game, that goal, to his becoming a pariah, the pace continues to hot up to include battles with criminal gangs to new career and commercial rewards. Following a romantic interlude in Canada the pace quickens again as murder occurs and a new life emerges.
As he adjusts to his new role as player manager and experiences all the behind the scenes activities of a football club, the race is on to be ready for a new season, a new beginning and a new world.
