NEXT GOAL WINS

A documentary to lift the heart, whether you’re into football or not. A lack of athleticism to one side, maverick Dutch coach Thomas Rongen’s ailing Samoan squad contains the emotionally scarred goalkeeper who conceded 31 goals against Australia a decade earlier and a member of samoa’s third gender, the fa’fafine, who lives 24/7 as a woman. To complicate matters further the team’s best player has been posted 6000 miles away by the US military. With the team about to embark on a gruelling world cup qualification campaign, Rongen has just one month to transform this ragtag of losers into a winning team.
