Fawzi and Mahmoud have a big dream: they want to become football stars and play with their idols in stadiums all over the world! As Syrian refugees, they live in the Zaatari camp in Jordan. In an environment marked by hopelessness, football seems to be the only way to a better future. Their chances are good, as a delegation from Qatar regularly comes to the camp to scout new talent. But the path to the academy for young talent is only open to a few. For the others, the return to the reality of Zaatari awaits, coupled with worries about an uncertain future.
