This year, things get tough. This year Afro-Napoli United has passed to the higher national youth football league. It is almost a dream to many foreign players from Ivory Coast, Cape Verde, Senegal and Brasil, without a resident permit. Every Saturday, Antonio, their stubborn coach, phones them one by one to summon them for the match. Maxim fled from a country at war, Ivory Coast, where he was a promise as a football player. Adam, Adamo for his adoptive Neapolitan mother, dropped out of school. He plays as goalkeeper and part-time acrobatic bartender. Lello has a son living abroad. He is stateless. He wants to have a better chance. Italian laws on immigration are as restrictive as tangled in a jungle of bureaucracy, in which Antonio fights his way to keep the team together. Afro Napoli United tells a personal, emotional story of social integration, that goes beyond migrants' rights.
