Synopsis

A portrait of six Africans whose lives are positively impacted by their participation in the game of soccer. For some, the sport provides an intense cultural bond, gluing African cultures together. For others, the sport creates an opportunity to escape hardship, to gain scholarships and a chance to choose their own fates. Here, young players are featured from Nigeria, Ghana, The Ivory Coast, South Africa, Egypt, and Cameroon. As we learn about each player's life, we also explore the sport from its humblest roots all the way to its highest levels and its largest personalities.
