A short fiction film about ideals, friendship, soccer and boys. Bobo and Eno are, as all other boys, keen on soccer. But Eno turns out to be more talented than Bobo, and he ends up on a very ambitious soccer team. This breaks up their friendship, and both boys seem to suffer. As Eno's mother puts it: »Even if you are good at dribbling - don't dribble away from your friends.«
