Storyline

Agali is a 12 year old boy who lives with his distant mother in the remote village in the northern Azerbaijan. He and his cousin and only friend Farrukh are inseparable and football is all they have in their otherwise dull and uneventful life, underlined by poverty and the roughness of the surrounding landscapes. Unlike Farrukh, Agali hates the school which he has no plans of graduating - he will be a top footballer like his hero, Portuguese football star Cristiano Ronaldo. Every day is a groundhog day for Agali and he spends it half asleep, half dreaming, and coming back to life only in the moments when him and Farrukh kick the football on the way to and back from school. But when the time comes for a middle-school graduation test, Agali realizes that something must be done to pass, with Farrukh's mother's teaching job suddenly at stake. Written by Anonymous
