“Peco” is a brash, arrogant player, determined to turn pro. He taught his quiet, nerdy childhood friend “Smile.” His coach and rivals recognize Smile’s talent for the game but to him it is just a game. Ironically, as Smile begins to develop his game, Peco undergoes a severe crisis after his defeat by rival players and is unable to play well until he rediscovers the original reasons why he plays ping-pong. This film features funky and impossible ping pong matches.
