Soccer-industry magnate Franz travels to Addis Ababa as part of a campaign promoting his sport as a fountain of hope to humanity. For Admassu, a 12-year old street kid, the chance to show off his artistry on the ball to the big boss himself seems like a magic door to a future as a soccer pro. When Franz ignores him, Admassu talks a group of halfwit thugs into kidnapping Franz. His real plan, though, is to come up as the football bosses liberator – finally opening the door to soccer heaven. But nothing goes as planned, and all of a sudden the two of them find themselves lost in the middle of the Ethiopian wilderness. As Admassu struggles to deliver Franz back to the city, the two natural born schemers find themselves in a curious vexing game, where the roles of helper and needy invert time and again.
