A man with a low-paying job in a shoe factory picks up some extra needed income to support his sick father and young son by playing illicit soccer (the games are for betting) wherever a vacant lot can be found. He has a booking agent and other middlemen who regularly skim off his earnings, but in the end, the soccer player has a chance to come up from behind and get back at his unsavory "bosses."
