Santiago (Kuno Becker) has been assigned to play with the big boys.

As an underprivileged Mexican-American immigrant growing up in the poor section of Los Angeles, Santiago Munez (Kuno Becker) seemed destined to follow his father's path in life: laboring at menial jobs to earn just enough money to support his family. Naturally gifted, his amazing talent on the soccer field was wasted in recreation league games while he could only dream of playing on the world stage of professional soccer. But when a British scout discovers his talent and gets him a tryout with one of England's premier soccer clubs, Newcastle United, Santiago must choose between his father's fate and his own destiny.
