A small group of die-hard Philadelphia soccer fans are incredulous when Major League Soccer denies them a team, so they take matters into their own hands. Calling themselves the Sons of Ben, they invent their own logo, chants, and songs, and show up at MLS games rooting for "Philadelphia!!!" even though they lack a team. Quickly growing to 1,500 members, their quixotic quest is a story about dreams, brotherhood, and the love of soccer.
