Life is centered around one day in the life of retiring head football coach Christoph Christopher Saur and his family. On this day his children finally seek answers that they have been denied since their childhood; what happened to dads family? Christopher reluctantly agrees to tell his story during the breaks of the days festivities. Life shows how football is more than just a two hour a day commitment, how the game affects more than just players, how lessons learned while playing extend beyond the gridiron, and how a simple game is a place of sanctuary from daily troubles of home or those of high school.
