A story revolving around a boy who loves soccer, his dad and a quirky grandpa who lives next door.

During the beginning of summer in the year 1998, a 10-year-old Gu Xiao Yang (Rong Zishan) dreams of running across the field with his childhood hero, Alessandro Del Piero. Xiao Yang's father Gu Jian Hua (Zhang Songwen) is an elementary school teacher. His mom Yang Hui Fang (Tan Zhuo) is a member of the opera. Being raised by strict parents, Xiao Yang finds that getting them to sign a simple application form to join the soccer team becomes a hurdle that he doesn't know how to overcome.

Gu Jian Hua is almost 40 years old and facing pressure at work and at home. When he meets Teacher Shen (Dong Qing), she becomes a ray of sunshine. Xiao Yang's neighbor Grandpa Zheng (Gu Bao Ming) is a widower and a retiree. His son and daughter-in-law wish for him to join them in Shenchuan, but he decides to stay in the small city where he has lived his entire life as he remains unable to let go of the past.

Xiao Yang accidentally witnesses his father and Teacher Shen hugging each other. Feeling angry and betrayed, he starts to rebel. Grandpa Zheng gives Xiao Yang a secret mission to train and prepare for the soccer tryouts.
