The movie premiered on July 7, 2006 in the New York City area. Miramax distributed the film only in limited release. The movie combines the narration of veteran actor Matt Dillon with interviews with many of the team's legendary star players (with the notable exception of Pelé, who demanded a $100,000 fee and refused to participate when the producers declined to pay it) and footage of the team in the North American Soccer League in the late 1970s and early 1980s.
