Line Hatland, Norway, 2021

89 min.Documentary

A film about the true super-league.

The setting is the biggest football tournament for kids in the world, Norway Cup.
Anna, Fred, Khalidi, Yu and Afnan all want to win the tournament.
They have practiced for a year under the mountains in Sunnmøre, at the kitchen floor in Palestine and in the heat in Brazil. This week in August feels like one of the most defining moments so far in their lives. Few will win most kids will lose.
We follow them through qualification rounds, through hard and easy matches meeting unfair judges, nagging parents, new friends and perhaps a flirt.
It is a feel good film about all the things we have been missing: About green grass, summer sun and helping each other back up on our feet again.
