How to Win a Lost Game

A film about boys who bring the struggle for their lives onto the soccer field. Hope springs eternal but here hope is a struggle with oneself and with despair.

The boys tell their story from within, the story of how the light pushes the darkness out of the way, without self-pity or evasion. They have exhausted every venue. Therefore the true facts stand naked. Marvelous people. Fascinating characters.
