One day Sebastián is a soccer phenom, the next day he isn’t. As if being in a wheelchair at 14 years old isn’t yet hard enough, Sebastián also has to face more changes. Switching schools and changes in the relationship with his father causes way too much stress.
Anthony is struggling in his relationship with his dad, too, mostly because he thinks his father wants him to be something he’s not - or at least Anthony doesn’t think he is. The two boys meet at Sebastián’s new school and develop a friendship. With the help of a professional hockey player, both Sebastián and Anthony begin to realize that reality is sometimes different from what they think.
