In a small Oregon community, a high school soccer team struggles to overcome their class and racial divides in a quest for both individual and team success. While leading striker, Domingo, deals with the sudden deportation of his father to Mexico, the defense stalwart, Erik, painfully learns how to become a captain and earn the respect of his Mexican-American teammates. Meanwhile, Coach Riviera, himself a local of Mexican descent, struggles to keep the team together amidst the pressure of academics and athletics. This coming-of-age film, set against the backdrop of a segregated American town, focuses on the friendship and maturation of these characters. Will Domingo graduate? Will Erik learn how to become a leader? Will the Eagles win the coveted state championship? What the Hood River Valley Eagles teach us is that at the end of a match, win or lose, soccer has the power to level the playing field and unite us in profound and lasting ways.
