This charming football drama is set in modern day Germany. When a large mining company takes over their village, Ben’s family must move to a nearby city. Feeling displaced, he starts a new school where he shares his outsider status and a love of football with Syrian refugee Tariq. Despite Tariq’s better playing skills, the pair team up. Ben brings Tariq back to his old village and learns that his friend longs to reunite with his scattered family. Helping him locate his older brother, both boys find hope and a way to exist in their new surroundings.
