Futbolistas 4 Life

The film takes you into the lives of two Oakland high schoolers: One is a college hopeful and DACA applicant who’s navigating the reality of his immigration status, and the other is an American citizen who lives in fear that her undocumented parents may be deported. These youth take solace in the game of soccer that lets them, if only for a moment, put their worries on the sidelines.
