In this film -- which is half romance and half sports drama -- Jack Cock stars as a champion soccer player, deeply in love with the team chairman's daughter. The chairman, however, runs out of money and must sell him, so he takes off and joins another team. Cock returns to the field as a member of this opposing team, going head to head with his old teammates -- but because he has broken his arm, he is forced to play with the arm in a sling. He ultimately becomes a hero once again by scoring the winning goal, but deeply upsets his paramour's father in the process.
