Steve Wilson follows the varsity soccer team from Woodburn High School (Oregon) through one season. The Woodburn team has played in the state championship for twenty years and is now made up of Hispanic immigrants and sons of immigrants. It is a very telling look at the struggles faced by Hispanics in the US-language, education, jobs, prejudice, immigration status and the part that soccer plays.
