Bad guys beware: There's a soccer mom on your trail.
With three kids, Sandra's life is a whirlwind of activity. Yet, sometimes she's a little bored.
When a referee drops dead during her son's soccer game, and a short man claiming to be an angel asks her to help investigate—suddenly, life's not such a routine.
The angel (is he really an angel?) tells her to go undercover as a soccer referee, which, of course, is ridiculous. She hasn't run anywhere since high school.
But Sandra will find out she is still capable of far more than she thought—with a little help from above.
