In an emotional episode, life coach Iyanla Vanzant travels to Alexander City, Alabama, the hometown of acclaimed and controversial NFL wide receiver Terrell Owens. Despite incredible talent and enormous success as a professional athlete, Terrell finds himself in a personal crisis that threatens his future.
The goal of Iyanla's visit is to help Terrell confront issues from his past that continue to negatively affect him in the present, as well as to encourage him to take the necessary first steps to repair what is broken in his life, career and relationships.
Through a series of emotional heart-to-heart sessions, Iyanla uncovers the pain from Terrell's childhood—rarely seeing his mother and not knowing the identity of his father until he was 11 years old. She also has a frank discussion with him about his reputation for bad behavior on and off the football field, addressing the reasons why he might be having a difficult time finding a new team.
