Synopsis:
Marco Montes is the second coach of a professional basket team, CB Estudantes. Arrogant and unable to respect good manners, he is fired after a fight with his boss during a match. Then he drives under the influence of alcohol and he has an accident with a police car. He is convicted to make social services during 9 months, training a team of intellectual disabled basket players, Los Amigos. The initial impact is bad and Marco tries to serve his sentence with the minimum effort because he thinks that they are good-for-nothings. Little by little the relationships will change until an unexpected ending.
