Jerry Maguire, a successful sports agent, has a life-changing realization about the dishonesty in his industry and decides to write a mission statement advocating for better client relationships. His company, Sports Management International (SMI), fires him, and Jerry and his protégé, Bob Sugar, compete to retain their clients. Jerry starts his own agency with the support of single mother Dorothy Boyd, but loses a top quarterback prospect to SMI. Jerry's relationship with his fiancée ends, and he grows closer to Dorothy and her son, Ray. Despite facing difficulties, Jerry focuses on his remaining client, Rod Tidwell, and eventually helps him secure an $11.2 million contract. The film ends with Jerry realizing Ray's potential in the sports industry and expressing his love for Dorothy.
