The tiny Caribbean island nation of Dominica (pop. 73,000) has an identity problem. Often confused for the Dominican Republic, and with its banana-dependent economy shaky at best, it sets an unusual goal to make a mark on the global stage—qualify for the World Cup soccer tournament finals.
Can the Jamaican bobsled team become The Mouse That Roared?
There is not much of a chance until its wily, imported Italian coach discovers secret weapons—a trio of overlooked, local teenagers. Two—Pato and Tato—just happen to be identical twins whose complementary skills make them difficult to defend. The third, Bluto, possesses a kick that could stun a charging rhino.
Dominica’s route will be full of hazards. Rival Caribbean national teams, seasoned superstars, and a US squad with every possible advantage have their own goals to accomplish. Much is at stake, but success in international soccer will solve many problems for this tiny island nation that unites in the effort.
