The film entitled The Big Green is about the adventures of Anna. Anna is an experienced Geography tutor from England who is on an exchange program in a school in Texas. During her first lessons with the children she finds it difficult to get along with them. The children feel so low about themselves and think they can never succeed. This is as because for the past four years the children have always been receiving the lowest marks in their state.

Anna is thus faced with the challenge of making them concentrate and believe in themselves again. She introduces the game of soccer to them instead of teaching the usual subject. She teaches them how to play soccer and the rules governing the game. She succeeds in qualifying them to join a league in the area and finds a co-coach known as Sherriff to assist her with the team.

Anna and her team travel to Austin to take part in the competitions. They play against the defending champions known as the Knights. The team loses the match and the children are so discouraged that they decide they will never play soccer again. They then identify a very talented player among them known as Juan.

Juan’s mother allows him to join and his support enables the team qualify for the finals. As everyone starts preparing to face the finals, Jay who is the coach of the Knights discovers information that endangers the life of Juan and his mother. They decide to runaway and take refuge somewhere.

On the day of the finals, Juan is nowhere to be found. Sherriff goes to look for him but can’t find him. The Knights lead during the first half of the game, and during the first few minutes of the second half Juan returns. He immediately joins his team and he scores the first goal for the team. At the end, the Big Green wins the match.
