When Newcastle United soccer star Santiago Munez is offered a spot with Real Madrid, he accepts, but the move - accompanied by big money and fame - tests his ties and loyalties to family, friends and business acquaintances.
An aimless young man who is scalping tickets, gambling and drinking, agrees to coach a Little League team from the Cabrini Green housing project in Chicago as a condition of getting a loan from a friend.
When I first viewed this movie I was completely amazed by it. It gave me a sense of realness and I must say it quite funny. Ciara's acting skills I thought were outstanding, seeing as it was her first movie, and she's had no acting training whatsoever. I also think that Adrienne Bailon did a stupendous job on this film. In the scene where her father died in the fire was completely remarkable. Her actions were right on point, and she even let out a tear or few. Not everyone can pull that off, I know I couldn't. The plot was fairly clever, indeed, transferring schools--brilliant! In this film everyone can take some sort of message from, whether good or bad, it's impossible not to take a message from it. It's a story about life, confidence, and friendship and believe me if you haven't seen it then I suggest you do.
