This is a sports drama with an unconventional theme -- volleyball. The story revolves around several college athletes who train especially hard in hopes of being accepted onto the U.S. Men's Olympic Volleyball team. Whether they win or lose is not really the point so much is if they make the team or not. One superstar player cannot take the coach's tough attitude and walks off the team, while another is sidelined with an injury., and a third has problems at home with his wife. In spite of the fast-paced story, the story does not lead to a climactic, winning game and this might disappoint some avid sports fans.
