This documentary follows the first ever Somali bandy (a form of ice hockey) team in their struggle to reach the world championship in Siberia in 2014. The team lives and trains in Borlänge, Sweden, and is coached by legendary former bandy players Per Fosshaug and Cia Embretsen. The immigrant men are hard working, educated, and willing to do whatever it takes to succeed, but their community ignores or mistreats them until they become famous.
