Synopsis

A thirteen-year-old boy is trying, unsuccessfully, to live up to his father’s dream of becoming a first class soccer player when a magical ball appears unto him and through wit, comedy and chicanery enlightens the dispirited boy and teaches him about the value of bravery, the importance of confidence and the power of belief.

Ernie McKenna is an ordinary thirteen year old with ordinary teenage problems.  He’s a good kid, running low on confidence.  His father, an ex- soccer champion, is trying to bring out the best in Ernie by getting him on the local soccer team.  Anxious to make his father happy, Ernie decides to give it a try, but as it turns out the coach and even his teammates don’t want him on the team.  His father insists that he weather the storm, but Ernie realizes that this is too big a storm for him to handle as his teammates bully him into quitting the team. 

It’s when he’s at the lowest point of his life that he meets a mysterious vagrant who gives him a magic stone.  The magic stone transforms Ernie’s soccer ball into a highly spirited, motivated mentor named SOCRATES.

Socrates and Ernie develop a special friendship as Socrates teaches Ernie how to improve his game, how to deal with his personal problems, eliminate his doubts and conquer his fears in life, love and soccer.

Ernie’s life begins to change dramatically, on and off the field. With Socrates’ help he develops a new sense of self worth and acquires a confidence that he never had before.

But suddenly, the wondrous soccer ball disappears and Ernie is lost.  He is convinced that all of his new-found abilities lie in Socrates magical powers and he will be useless without them.  It is when he has to face his greatest test, alone, that he makes a very surprising discovery about himself.
