Jimmy is a very good football-player, but only when he plays alone in the backyard. In his schoolteam Jimmy all his self-confidence drains away. One day an old woman gives him a pair of worn-down football boots, adding that they will give him magic power...

Excellent film not only for football kids, that most successfully made its way through the festivals and will - hopefully - do the same through the cinemas all over Europe.
