J.J's only goal in life was to get out of the Ghetto.  She didn't want to be another statistic : pregnant, poor and uneducated.
The only way she knew how to make her dreams a reality was through her love of soccer.
Soccer was her ticket to a new life, far away from what she has ever known.  But is this where she wants to be? 
J.J. learns that sometimes dreams aren't always better than reality.
