Veronica Swanson is a vivacious soccer investor from Madison, Wisconsin, who falls for Derek Fallon, a charismatic forward from Manchester, England. She signs him to the Madison Maelstrom, a losing team. Headstrong and stubborn, Derek solves her financial trouble in unorthodox ways, against the advice of Veronica and her attorney. He plays the game with fanatical zeal and stirs the growing crowd with lunacy. Soon every game is a sellout and his female admirers dub him "Romeo," pursuing him with the adolescent adoration of a rock star's band of groupies. The out-of-control situation escalates until Veronica and Derek must survive under the same roof in a relationship both comical and emotional as they ward off the fans and suffer tumultuous feelings as they fall in love.
