Jordan of TV’s FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS), a 22-year-old Bay Area resident who wakes up on New Year’s Eve, 2008, and decides to get a head start on his resolutions: being a better son to his mother (Octavia Spencer of THE HELP), being a better partner to his girlfriend, and being a better father to T, their beautiful 4-year-old daughter.
