Captains of Zaatari (2021)

Sobre o filme

Mahmoud and Fawzi have been living in the Zaatari refugee camp, in Jordan. Though they both have no sense of what the future holds for them, they focus their energy together on their first love: soccer. Despite the dire circumstances in the camp, they practice day in and day out, believing firmly that playing professionally is their ticket to freedom. When Aspire Academy, one of the world’s leading sports academies, arrives to pick players for an international tournament in Doha, Mahmoud and Fawzi are immediately identified as talents. However, they will follow different paths.
