Playing for the all-boys Catholic school team, Danny dreams of becoming a star football player some day. His friends on the team dream of different things; Mickey thinks fashion design is his gateway to wealth and supermodels, while Gary thinks it’s becoming a magician. Spike is more pragmatic and seeing as he’s good at being a bully decides it would make sense for him to be a mercenary. Wanting to become more like his South American idols he takes up Samba lessons to add the spirit of South America to his football.
