To top it off, he's got a difficult dad with a secret, a crush on a girl making a video about the team, and two crazy Italian coaches who have blasted their way into his life and seem determined to change it forever . . . Can the Leftovers pull it together for the big match, or is Will's life about to totally fall apart?
