Since his home village is to make way for a lignite opencast mine, Ben (12) and his family have to move to the next larger city. In the new school he is the outsider at first. And things don't go as hoped for the talented striker at the new football club either. To make matters worse, there is another newcomer at the school: Tariq (11), a refugee from Syria, who not only steals the show in class but also scores points on the soccer field. Will Ben remain sidelined - or does his competitor have more in common with him than he thinks?
