Bandian (Aboubacar Sidiki Sumah), an 8-year-old boy living in a small village in Guinea, dreams of playing soccer in the big leagues, but he is crushed when he learns that simply buying a ball will require a lifetime of work. Thankfully, a local doctor (Agnès Soral) surprises him with a new soccer ball when she returns from a trip to Europe. Armed with the doctor’s gift, Bandian is ready to leave his home and take the first of many steps toward the realisation of his dreams.
