In the small town of Ferrara, Italy, Lorenzo finds work coaching American-style football in the fledgling Italian Football League. It's a league where everyone can kick but no one can catch. While coaching, Lorenzo falls in love with Paola Angelini, a headstrong, young music student who forces him to face the same decision as his immigrant grandfather some seventy years earlier.
