Grace Henderson, a star of the US Women's National Soccer Team, is facing a crossroads in her career. At the age of 26, she's been sidelined by an injury, and her place on the team is threatened by the rise of a talented newcomer, Phoebe Matthews.

Phoebe is everything Grace isn't: a gregarious jokester who plays with a joy that Grace has lost somewhere along the way. The last thing Grace expects is to become friends-with-benefits with this class clown.

As the World Cup approaches, and Grace works her way back from injury, the women try to find a way they can play together instead of vying for the same position on the pitch. But as the sparks between them start to ignite, will both players realize they care more about their relationship than making the roster?
