There, soccer is just as big as the NFL or college football in America, and the fans are known to be fiercely passionate. At the time he went to Europe to pursue his dream DeMerit was just 21, and lived a sparse existence while training constantly. In this documentary, we watch as DeMerit starts out scoring goals in Sunday park leagues, and steadily advances through the ranks.

Interviews with various soccer players from both sides of the pond help to tell DeMerit's incredible tale of perseverance. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: Jay DeMerit Movie Details Play Trailer Buy Tickets Movie Review
