Armando has an Estonian mother and an Argentinian father. The latter is an explanation behind Armando's name - the legendary Armando Maradona of course. Might be because of the special name that Armando really loves football and for some time already has been playing for the FC Nõmme's Pines. With the arrival of Summer, the coach Timo decides to take the boys to a summer camp to South Estonia to practice on footwork and team spirit. For the last day of the camp a friendly with a local team is planned but the locals get a gonorrhea and the game is on the verge to be cancelled. Luckily the village boys are happy to take the FC Nõmme's Pines on. City kids are confident they will beat the rookies easily because how could they possibly not?
