Description

Kicking balls, shooting stars.

Are you glued to a game? Have you wondered what life is like as a young and promising sports star? Through unprecedented access, Ordinary Gods offers a glimpse into the lives of six World Cup hopefuls, from wildly different cultures, as they fight for a spot on their respective national teams. Shot over the course of three years, follow each player as they struggle with injury, homesickness and the pressure of being a young talent on the international stage. Even if you don't follow the sport, these stories--rags to riches, triumph of spirit, and hard-won success will blow your mind. Highlighting human resilience and the primacy of familial relationships, explore what it takes to be successful not just in one of the world's most beloved sports, but in the world itself. - Kelly A. Harrison


Presented In Honor Of Jim Boyce
