Motivation


The director manages, in an intense and amusing way, to tell a story of immigration without stereotypes or falling into easy clichés. It makes one reflect on the theme the change in identity as a result of emigration. The whole story is told with great acumen and irony.



A group of desperate slum dwellers, living on the margins of society under impossible pressures, find an invitation to a handball tournament in Bavaria to be the answer to their prayers, a one way ticket to the West and the wealth that will solve all their problems.
