Korean-American Jim Paek is given a ragtag bunch of players from his ancestral land to prepare for their home Olympics against the juggernauts of the game. A humorous character-driven underdog story about a small team trying to achieve the impossible steered by their coach torn between the ways of the east and the west, while below the surface painting a picture of the tangled world of sports, business, national and international politics, religions and education.
