Pablo and Diego are brothers who work as dishwashers at a local bar and play soccer in the afternoons. On the way home from practice one day, Diego is the victim of a hit and run. Pablo and his widowed mother are unable to pay for the surgeries needed to keep Diego alive, which prompts Pablo to recruit a team of eclectic friends and enter a soccer tournament to win the $100,000 peso prize money and pay for his brother’s life-saving surgeries.
