South Sudan became an independent state in July 2011, following almost 50 years of civil wars. The terrifying but fascinating process of the birth of a nation is accompanied by death, malaria and financial meltdown. Seeking to form a national football team, the new country calls in the Serbian Zoran Djordjevic, a hugely successful veteran coach. The film follows Zoran’s team over its first year, from scouting for players in the wilderness to signing up a sheep called Champion as the mascot. Zoran’s win-at-all-costs style soon leads to conflict with the officials.
