Heartland Son is a drama about an ex-football star from a small Iowa town. As the film opens, Charlie "Champ" Hannen (Richard Archer) seems to have it all. He is the quarterback of his high school football team and has a chance at an athletic scholarship to college. For his entire life, Champ has also received love and unconditional support from his mother (Patti Cannon). When she unexpectedly passes away, Charlie's dreams are pushed aside as he falls into a sad cycle of alcoholism and meaningless relationships. Ten years pass and Champ is still living in his childhood home and involved in a relationship with Sadie (Jamie Luchuck), a married woman. He and his father, Cole (Stephen G. Black), disagree on how Charlie lives his life, and they often argue about his relationship with Sadie. When his father also dies unexpectedly, Champ must face the memories of his unrealized dreams and figure out how to move forward.
