In 1938, Young Czechoslovaks learn to play basketball from American Mormons at a YMCA camp. When the war starts, their coach is arrested and executed — and the team is taken over by young lawyer Franta. After the liberation, Franta visits the prison where their coach died, picks up a handful of soil, puts it in a box and fastens it with tricolor stripe. The team carries this talisman to European Championship in Geneva and miraculously, they become the winners. However, everything changes again with the communist coup. The basketball players are persecuted, Franta is arrested. The weak team is still going to the championship in Paris. But will they succeed?
