Flora’s school is at the top of Northern Maine - Acadia High School, to be precise.  She has the honor of being the top player on the team, as her mother was before her.  After a disappointing no-show by the Androscoggin team, Flora arrives home to discover her coach has an amazing offer for her - she has been given a tryout slot at the International Sports Academy for the United States U-15 National Women’s Soccer Team - the opportunity of a lifetime!  She’s going to be the first Dupre to trade the potato fields for a soccer pitch and a chance to follow-thru on her dream.  Flora’s size and strong accent make her stand out among the girls and discovers following a dream may be more work than she had anticipated.
