Marco (Javier Gutiérrez), the assistant coach of a professional basketball team in Spain’s First Division, has problems at work, problems with his wife and problems with almost everything. After a drunken brawl with the head coach leads to community service, Marco is sentenced to coach a basketball team of people with learning disabilities. Marco is surprised to find that he’s the one with the most to gain from his adventure with the team, whose love of life and understanding of what’s really important are lessons Marco has yet to learn.
