After a ten-year break from football, Emil, 30, a primary school teacher, decides to make a comeback and take the last chance in life to become a professional football player. The best place to experience the great adventure may be in East Africa and the goal is to become the first European player in the Kenyan Premier League. Emil wants football to be joy and artistry, but in Kenya his carefree attitude is challenged when he starts to play with Kibera Black Stars, a team from the biggest slum in Africa.
