Those who think they can takeadvantage of the prestige of an American manager believe everything he says and give him full credit. He undertakes the reorganisation of a sports club, makes important connections whoch he immediately turns into cash. He works primarily for himself, but he lets the sports people have some of the profits and manages to fool even the suspicious and man-hater coach of the female aerobics team. He is very talented in talking to women, money people, politicans. Juggling with loans coming from here and there he could keepp up the appearance of being rich, if it wasn’t for a usurer who gets everything mixed up. He is not interested in the beautiful speeches of Mr. Pal, all he cares about is getting his money back on time. An old jail-mate of Pal appears as well and starts blackmailing his buddy he believes to be rich. Mr. Pal decides to hinge everything on one thing: the succes of the sports team he manages.
