This wonderful Y.A. underdog story captures the world’s most popular sport filmed in the bustling city of Sydney. 


After hopping on a bus to Harold Soccer Academy instead of Harold Academy Australian Semester at Sea, science fanatic, Cory Bailey has no choice but to complete a semester at the soccer academy when the boat leaves without her and she's unable to join her parents while they volunteer in remote India.


Though unimpressed with being surrounded by "silly" jocks, it's not long until Cory embraces her roommates' hospitality. It's also not long until the school's superstar player, Edie begins to make life difficult for Cory. With the school hosting the National Soccer Tournament, Cory is determined to combine her team's various skills to beat Edie’s team in the finals.
