Landon “L Train” Prater is a 17-year-old football player on the Crystal City Hornets, a school where football is not only a way of life but a way to live. The oldest of six brothers, his dream of NFL stardom is only budding in the smaller of the Twin Cities. From his charisma to his car, his life in rural Missouri strikes a contrast between the expected view of the midwest and indicates a changing trend in modern teenage culture, where the life desired offers a new path than the present.
