SYNOPSIS ET DÉTAILS
Ages ten and up
Mitri is fifteen and lives in a Senegalese village. Like all boys his age, he plays football and dreams of Barça and of Chelsea. When a recruiting agent picks him up out, Mitri believes his chance has come. But to get seen by the great European football clubs, one has to pay. His family chips in and puts itself into debt to help him. Once in Paris, everything collapses: Mitri finds himself abandoned, without a dime in his pocket, and unable to imagine dealing with the shame should he return to his village. An odyssey which will require all his resourcefulness hence begins. But his football dream will soon catch up with him...

À partir de 10 ans
Mitri a 15 ans et vit dans un village au Sénégal. Comme tous les jeunes de son âge, il joue au foot en rêvant du Barça et de Chelsea. Lorsqu’un agent recruteur le repère, Mitri croit en sa chance. Mais pour partir à l’assaut des grands clubs européens, il faut payer. La famille se cotise et s’endette pour l’aider. Une fois à Paris, tout s’écroule : Mitri se retrouve abandonné sans un sou en poche, et ne peut imaginer affronter la honte du retour au village. Une odyssée faite de débrouilles commence alors. Mais son rêve de foot le rattrapera au coin d’une rencontre.
