A prodigious young soccer player from the hard-up streets of Los Angeles tries out for England's Newcastle United club.

ABSTRACT
Santiago Muņez is a young man from a Los Angeles barrio, dreaming of becoming a famous soccer star while he toils away at a Chinese restaurant and helps his father's gardening enterprise. Noticed by ex-Newcastle United player and current Los Angeles auto mechanic Glen Foy while playing for his ramshackle local squad, Santiago is promised a tryout with the prestigious English club; though that falls through when his father loots his savings, his grandmother helps him get a plane ticket to England, sending Santiago on a twisting and turning journey as he works harder than ever to realize his life's dream.
