California Premiere! 

For 12-year-old Ben (Yoran Leicher), home means playing on his village’s soccer team. When the nearby coal mine expands, forcing his family to move to the city, Ben must leave everything he loves behind. At his new school, Ben struggles to fit in both in class and on the soccer field. When Tariq (Sohbi Awad), an 11-year-old newcomer from Syria – who happens to be an ace soccer player, arrives and steals the show, Ben only sees the new boy as competition. But the rivalry between the two boys doesn’t last long, as they soon learn that they share more in common than they think. Winkenstette’s debut feature is a touching coming-of-age story suitable for the whole family that masterfully combines entertainment, emotion, and meaningful storytelling.
