    • Wonkwang, a former soccer prospect whose life didn’t turn out quite promising, is at the end of rope when he goes to East Timor. There seems to be not much hope until he comes across the street kids playing a ball with bare feet. At first, he thinks he can sell soccer goods to the kids. But he soon realizes none of them can afford to buy any of it. With deep regrets on his idea of taking advantage of these poor kids and his passion to soccer, he decides to teach the kids how to play ball. His dedication and dream of the kids meet up to form the first youth soccer team of East Timor. Based on a true story of East Timor Youth Soccer Team.
