In the small fishing village of Koh Panyee in Southern Thailand resides one of the most successful football youth teams. Produced as part of an advertising campaign, the Thai Military Bank introduce this dramatized documentary which looks at the roots of football in a village built on stilts with almost no space at all. Inspired after watching the 1986 World Cup on television, the local children build a floating wooden pitch with open sides and the occasional exposed nail and honed their skills on the wet wood with bare feet; however their first real challenge came when they went to the mainland for their first tournament.
