How far can two misfit inductees to the world of soccer go, on the road to joining a professional team? That's the question posed by this offbeat comedy-drama from Italy. Elia may be mentally challenged - some insinuate that he has a 12-year-old brain in an 18-year-old body - but he can handle the ball like there's no tomorrow, with skills so razor-sharp that he's never once missed a penalty kick in his life. Michele, on the other hand, is quite the opposite: in his late 40s, he still pines for dreams of soccer that he lost and abandoned long ago when a grave accident prevented him from going professional. Now, equipped with the uncanny ability to recognize and cultivate raw talent, Michele spots Elia's ability and plans to promote him the next great triumph in soccer. The two hit the road together, en route to the tryouts for a major team, encountering such obstacles and complications as monomaniacal sports managers and overbearing attorneys along the way.
