Based on a true story, this film tells the tale of the 1950 US soccer team who, against all odds, beat England 1 - 0 in the city of Belo Horizonte, Brazil. Although no US team has ever won a World Cup title, this story is about the family traditions and passions which shaped the lives of the players who made up this team of underdogs.

I found this short film to be very funny. Well put together. Fifteen minutes is not long to tell a story, but they made all their points well. I suspect we will be seeing more movies by Ariel Vromen and company.
Gerard Butler demonstrates he has a sense of humor, and great comedic timing. I don't think many actors could have done justice to this story, as he did. The "behind the scenes", alone is worth the cost of the DVD.
