Caught in the rip currents of apartheid, Erasmus struggles to find his place in a school that expects him to play rugby, parents who condemn inter-racial relationships, and a government system which crushes the hopes of equal rights at every turn.

Through it all, he finds freedom on the soccer field, where he and his friends start their own team, and try to make a difference in a world that refuses to listen.
