In 2012, a Tanzanian girls’ football team arrives in Finland to play football in Helsinki Cup. None of the girls have ever travelled outside their home region before, and they have great expectations on how the international tournament will affect their future. However, when the girls return home, their expectations seem to be left unfulfilled: school isn’t going well, people are jealous, the team is falling apart, and some of their neighbours don’t even believe the girls have been anywhere at all. The documentary tells a story about life, dreams, and fair play: The play may be fair in the pitch, but not so much in life itself.
