Synopsis:
The "football friends" are seven boys aged between six and ten for whom football is everything. Of course, they want to spend the approaching summer holidays kicking a ball around, but the playground has already been taken: by their worst enemies, fat Michi and his "invincible victors" - and to make it worse, the others are several years older. The football friends and the invincible victors agree to compete for the playground in a football match.

But a lot must happen before the football friends have any chance of success. They have to escape from their parents' detention, find a trainer, and not only to practice passes, crosses and shots at goal in a boggy field. They learn that friendships can be spoilt, but also mended again, and they also discover that even most fiendish of them is not immune to a weakness known as falling in love ...
