Mumbai, India. An Indian minister see's kids playing football in a local slum, he see's talent and ask's himself why hasn't India got a meaningful international footballing presence? The South Mumbai Junior soccer Challenger is born. From 2000 kids just two will be selected to fly to england and be trained like pro's by a premiership club. A privileged boy and a working class boy beat the competition and embark on the journey of a lifetime. Over three years, we follow Shaun and Hussein from the streets of mumbai to the elite footballing grounds of London, where they make friends, conquer inexperience and succeed. Their emotional story opens a journalistic discussion about Indian Football itself and illustrates why it has fallen from international grace.
