He dreams of winning the Under-17 trophy for his country, so he begins to neglect school work, ignore his chores at home, and disregard other responsibilities except to his team. His only goal is to be a professional player and earn a lot of money, but he never acknowledges he might need an education. One day Kofi goes with his mother to visit his grandfather, who has been blind for a long time. Kofi’s uncle, an ophthalmologist, along with an American co-worker, performs cataract surgery on his grandfather. The operation is a starting point—the grandfather can now see his grandson for the first time and Kofi realizes that his uncle’s talent, which requires an education, just might be more important than soccer.
