The story is about a Syrian football team in the city of Bussum in the Netherlands. The team began playing last year in the 4th class of the provincial competition. Anass Bendrif’s approach is to show the potential of integration through sports. The focus of the documentary is to portray how players, though coming with different experiences due to the political situation in Syria, are united through football.
