Abstract:Two soccer tems in Congo. Two groups of girls. The eldest is 30 years old, the youngest 15. Their job: professional soccer players. A crazy choice for their families, because in Congo, it is nearly impossible to live from the income soccer provides. These players bring thousands of fans to the stadium, though they live in poverty. Nevertheless, they continue to believe and train every day. Their dream: to go to Europe, and play in a women's soccer club. The film shows the duality in the lives of these players. The life in the stadium, under the spotlight, and the other life, outside, the struggle for survival. [Abstract reproduced form dvd-video].
