Breaking barriers and building bridges on and off the soccer field.

Ben was happy being popular at school and the star player on his local soccer team, but his life is turned upside down when his family have to move after his village becomes the site for a new open brown coal mine. At Ben’s new school he is bullied and relegated to playing defence on his new soccer team. Things start to look up when he meets another new student, Tariq, a refugee from Syria, who is searching for his missing brother. Through their friendship and mutual love of soccer Ben and Tariq are able to offer comfort and support to each other, and ultimately, hope.

A smart and sensitive drama that touches on some current major world issues, with a core message about the power of empathy and compassion through friendship.

Parental guidance: mild coarse language, mild themes with discussions about the Syrian Civil War and a child implied to have PTSD.
