Synopsis

Moses Adams, 28, a former premier league international from Nigeria, slowly realises that, after a long-term injury, his professional football career is coming to an end. Based in Belgium and in need of funds, he decides to become a players’ agent and set up a small football academy in Nigeria.

With hopes for a promising career, he lures young talents to Europe. But will he be able to keep his promises? Like his protégés, Moses once came to Europe with big hopes of a new life, an international career. But at the end of his sports career, there’s no going back and he himself becomes part of a system that lives on the dreams of young men.
