With the arrival of a new baby, the Fitzpatrick kids worry about the family's finances, so Sean gets an afterschool job to help.

Although still a sophomore, Sean has a good chance of getting into the school's football team and winning a scholarship if he makes the grade.

He faces opposition when he takes his studies and football too seriously because the other Fitzpatrick children, in an effort to help subsidise their parents' meagre income, have taken on part-time jobs.

Sean doesn't contribute but later relents and tries to be a superman — working, studying and playing football with the same vigour.

Max, the youngest Fitzpatrick, makes his first communion and the experience has special meaning for the entire family.

The problem arises when he has to forsake one for the other when the schedule becomes too hectic.
