Take Off

In an effort to bring the 2002 Winter Olympics to the small town of Muju, the national Olympic committee decides to form a national ski jump team. It tasks Coach Bang Jung Sam to recruit members for the new team in a sport that most Koreans have never heard of. The five men he assembles is a mish-mash of misfits that includes junior Alpine ski champion Bob James, a Korean adoptee who returned to Korea to find his birth mother. Despite a lack of support, the team exemplifies the Olympic spirit.
