This is a lively film about a soccer team representing a youth club from Brigunj (town in western Nepal bordering Bihar, India) that travels to Bihar in India to play a tournament. Diarisitic and spontaneous in nature, the film cherishes myriad moments of laughter and camaraderie. Wins and losses are part of the story, both on the soccer field and in life.
