In a depressed Texas town, British foreign exchange teacher Anna attempts to inject some life into her hopeless kids by introducing them to soccer. They're terrible at first, but Anna and her football-hero assistant whip them into shape. As they work overtime, the pair help kids build their self-esteem and also get involved in solving family squabbles.
In this Disney comedy, the down-trodden cynical young misfits of a run-down Texas town find renewed hope and spirit at the hands of a plucky British foreign-exchange teacher who introduces them to soccer.
