    • COOL KIDS DON’T CRY tells the story of Akkie, a spirited young girl, who loves soccer, even though her classmate Joep thinks that soccer is not meant for girls. When Akkie is diagnosed with leukemia, she remains optimistic. She even continues interfering with the school soccer tournament while she is lying in the hospital. But when Akkie’s health deteriorates so much she is no longer able to participate in the tournament, Joep comes up with a really special plan.
