One day, a rich acquaintance of him asks Buttermaker to train his son's team, which is already signed up for the Los Angeles secondary schools tournament.

When the Bears' owner wants to dismiss the team and the little players are suffering for the humiliations on the field, Buttermaker uses two miraculous tricks.
