This compelling documentary follows members of Calgary soccer team Downtown Dawgs as they journey to the Homeless World Cup in Cape Town, South Africa. We get to know each player and the circumstances that led them to homelessness, and we witness their failures and successes as they try to get off the street and make the Canadian National Homeless team. The film gives a glimpse inside the Social Services system in the City of Calgary, and how it helps those in need. We also get the opportunity to share in the joys and sorrows of the players and the support crew?including their counselor and coach?as they face the problems associated with homelessness, and the attitudes of those living in Calgary. A must-see for anyone concerned about social issues in urban environments.
