Glen and Jacob are best friends and linemates until a new hotshot, Danny, joins their Toronto soccer team.
Glen thinks Danny is cool, and together they get deeper and deeper in trouble. Jacob tries to warn his old friend that he's headed for disaster, but Danny's bad attitude threatens to take the whole team down.
Heads Up! is a story about the hard choices young people face every day, and how friends can help us make them.
