Arcady, an orphan in Soviet Russia, is convinced his ticket out of the orphanage is being recruited for the Red Army Soccer Club. When a schoolteacher-turned-orphanage-inspector who Arcady mistakes as a talent scout shows up during a pickup game at the orphanage, Arcady expects liberation and a spot on his country's beloved soccer team, but not the love that might come with it. Will Arcady ever play for the Red Army Soccer Club or learn to accept a place in his new found home?
