Tom, 13, an excellent student in every subject but especially mathematics, should be the pride of his father, Jo Canavaro, with whom he lives alone since his mother passed away. Unfortunately, in Jo's eyes, only one thing matters: rugby, a sport for which Tom has no interest or aptitude. Jo comes from a long line of rugby legends and his son's failure to continue the family success is a great disappointment to him. Jo decides to form a new rugby team in his southwestern France village, hoping this will spark a passion for the sport in his son. With the help of his friends Pompon and Le Chinois, Jo contacts his former teammates. But along the way, the former star player realizes he has to review his priorities.
