Chris Gardner is an intelligent, energetic guy who can't catch a break. In the sluggish Bay Area economy of 1981, he's losing ground, by investing all his family's money in high cost bone-density scanners. His wife leaves him, he loses his apartment, and with his 5-year-old son in tow joins the ranks of the homeless, if not the hopeless. Bounced from shelter to shelter, he finds himself a single dad who has to support and care for a young child. Impressing a Dean Witter higher-up by solving a Rubik's cube during a taxi ride, Chris gets a place in a stockbroker-training program.

Alors qu'il tente d'acquérir un lanceur de premier plan, l'ex-joueur de baseball divorcé et père d'une adolescente fait la connaissance de Peter Brand, un économiste issu de l'université Yale.

Sans tenir compte de l'opinion de ses recruteurs, Beane l'embauche sur le champ et fait sur ses conseils appel à des laissés-pour-compte. Après un début de saison désastreux, au cours duquel Beane en découd avec l'entraîneur buté de l'équipe, les Athletics consolident leurs forces et remontent la pente. Durant la saison 2002, ils battront le record du plus grand nombre de victoires consécutives. [(c) Médiafilm].
