Handsome and quiet, Mbasa Kilu walks awkwardly and with difficulty. Born with two club feet, he cannot participate in soccer, which he loves, except as an equipment manager for the local team. Girls shy away from him or ignore him. All except Ofi Leya, who loves him as her childhood friend. Everyone has seen him numerous times kick a soccer ball tremendously high into the branches of a big tree on the sidelines at soccer practice. Just a pastime. Until someone see him do this and takes steps to change Mbasa Kilu's life forever.
