Norsk filminstitutt

Friendship, trials, victories and loss - the young players at the world's biggest soccer tournament for kids, Norway Cup, has a lot of challenges also outside the football pitch. Afnan from Palestine, Khalidi from Tanzania/USA, Yu from China, Fred from Brazil and Anna from Norway have all trained hard the last year to prepare for the cup. Their goal is to win, but they cannot all bring the trophy home.
