This wittily assembled movie, with music by the likes of Devendra Banhart and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, presents a coed soccer team of seven-year-old enthusiasts whose members, despite constant losses and an inability to shoot a goal, never lose the joy of the game.
The players of the Margatánia coed team well know that they will lose their upcoming game in the soccer prep league.

In this wittily constructed movie, with music by the likes of Devendra Banhart, Patience and Prudence, and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, the Spanish creative duo presents a soccer team of seven-year-old enthusiasts who, despite constant losses and an inability to shoot a goal, never lose the joy of the game.
