Zico came to Iceland from Morocco to seek his fortune. After ten years running his own small business, Zico goes bankrupt. Desperate and depressed he decides to fire up his amateur team called Africa United and take them into the semi-professional 3rd division. He calls upon immigrants all over Iceland, players from Morocco, Nigeria, Colombia, Serbia, Kosovo, Gambia and Guinea to help realize his vision. The road to success is rocky and mid-season Africa United has lost all games; their best player walks out and Zico decides to meet his role-model in football in England for advice. Having done so, he comes back with fresh ideas on how to approach his goals in life and football. —Poppoli Pictures
