A multiracial brotherhood among “Tauke” Chow Kwok Keong leading his football team, Harimau Malaya, with striker Ali and goalkeeper Muthu to the 1980s Moscow Olympics is celebrated for their perseverance and unison in dream. Their inspirational journey also takes on a comical side with sports commentator wannabe Rahman together marching towards the big event.
