Synopsis of Yesterday’s Hero (movie)
You don’t always get a second chance to relive your glory days. When the opportunity comes, take it.
Rod Turner (Ian McShane) is a 35-year-old ex-soccer whiz who one day gets a second chance to reach for the brass ring.

Now, years later, they meet again when Cloudy’s singing partner and boyfriend, Clint Simon, hires Rod for the professional soccer team he owns.
In spite of the team’s fiendish manager — and a suddenly complex personal life as he once again gets involved with his ex, now the girlfriend of his new boss — Rod is determined to make this second chance work.
With an upbeat, pulsating soundtrack, top-notch sports photography and excellent performances, this is a film that will make you root for the underdog.

From Beverly Hills bedrooms to a raunchy prowl along the streets of Hollywood; from glittering rock parties and concerts to stretch limos and the mansions of the power brokers — Jackie Collins chronicles the real truth from the inside looking out.
Jackie Collins has been called a “raunchy moralist” by the late director Louis Malle and “Hollywood’s own Marcel Proust” by Vanity Fair magazine. With over 500 million copies of her books sold in more than 40 countries, and with some thirty New York Times bestsellers to her credit, Jackie Collins is one of the world’s top-selling novelists. She is known for giving her readers an unrivaled insiders knowledge of Hollywood and the glamorous lives and loves of the rich, famous, and infamous! “I write about real people in disguise,” she says. “If anything, my characters are toned down — the truth is much more bizarre.”
