The Team – Zimbabwe

In a run-down, ethnically mixed, mining town between Harare and Bulawayo, we meet Pablo and Beans, two young men of different ethnicities, who have little money but who are rich in energy and dreams.

When a big city team promotes a scouting contest, the handsome, smooth-talking Pablo vows to put together a team and cons the studious Beans into joining his scheme. Through sheer nerve, the pair convinces a down and out former superstar Malawian coach, into coming out of retirement to help them achieve their dream. However, before the team can come together, they must overcome ethnic and socio-economic differences, inter-generational challenges, and gender inequities between young men and women in a nation plagued by difficulties.
