Filmed during play-offs for the 1994 World Cup. the film follows the events as the unspoilt, people of the Solomons meet a highly trained and vastly more experienced adversary of the Australian Socceroos. Their determination to do the best for their team and their country and to make it to the big time serve as an inspiration to anyone who dreams of representing their country. Millions of dollars are spent by teams around the world in their attempts to win this prestigious event. But for one of the smallest and poorest nations of the world, the big league is not supported by state-of-the-art training facilities or multi-million dollar sponsorship deals.
