    • Synopsis
    • The film tells the story of the lives of a group of street youths struggling to find their purpose through a sport and counter culture they discover on the Internet. Parcour & Street Football.

      They have the talent but no guidance or sense of self worth, until a mysterious man arrives in their town. Once the greatest mid-field captain in his country, he is now disgraced and unrecognisable as a middle aged alcoholic drifter. His only plans were to come home to die; until he discovers the kids and a passion he had forgotten.

      The story takes them on an Odyssey which finds the underdogs competing at the World futsal championships, to win the pride for their small hometown and to pay back the loan they took to get there; But to do this, they must become artists in their own right to be able to beat the idols they grew up emulating on the Internet.
