GOING FOR GOAL - THE HOMELESS WORLD CUP 

Per is good at soccer but less good at managing his life. He has been homeless for 17 years and now he is going to play for Denmark in the Homeless World Cup. With the rest of the team (ten men and a woman) he swaps his beer and cigarettes for Cola and vitamins as he embarks on a tough training program intended to strengthen body and spirit, self-confidence and togetherness. The team doesn't exactly resemble Manchester United or even the top Danish club, but its goal is the same: to win! This is a film about a different kind of soccer world cup, triumphs and disappointments, shattered hopes and living dreams.
