Many Syrian refugees are stranded in Zaatari, which is the biggest refugee camp in Jordan. Among them are Fawzi and Mahmoud. In this town made up of tents, soccer is a great passion for these two young men, giving them hope for a better future. They want to make it to the Aspire Academy for young talents and impress the delegation from Qatar, which is always on the lookout for budding soccer stars in the camp. Ali El Arabi accompanies Fawzi and Mahmoud and paints an intimate and hopeful picture of their friendship and their shared dream.
