Too Far Away

Since his home village is to become an opencast mine, 11-year-old Ben and his family must move to a nearby city. At his new school, Ben is the underdog and struggles to fit in, even at the sports club. Adding to Ben’s challenges, another newcomer to the school, 12- year-old Tariq - a Syrian refugee - not only steals the show from him in class, but also scores on the football field.

Will Ben stay on the sidelines – or does his competitor have more in common with him than he thinks?
