Description: Fair-haired Ecki, the baker’s son, has grown up the golden boy of his home town. All that changes the instant he and his soccer teammates discover he’s gay. Now the object of scorn and ridicule (and finding himself unceremoniously kicked off his team), Ecki travels to the city of Dortmund to recruit an all-gay soccer team to return and prove to his town and his former soccer mates who the best men are. As first-time-out Ecki searches blindly through gay watering holes for players, his parents endure a rash of derisive gay jokes from the townies, leaving Ecki’s gruff father to hope for a change in his son’s orientation while also considering closing down the family business.
