About the Film
12-year-old Ben and his family must leave their village because of the surface lignite mining in
the western region of Germany. Ben has trouble fitting into his new school and equally new
soccer club, while his old friends are already moving on. Then Tariq, a young Syrian, is seated
next to him in school, and the two slowly bond over their shared interests–and shared losses.
