The 2017 documentary Men in the Arena follows two teenagers trying to make it as soccer players in one of the most dystopian places on earth — battle-ravaged Somalia.

Think Hoop Dreams, but set in a war zone.

The two young players are good enough that they play on Somalia's mostly hapless national team, which goes to Kenya in 2013 for an important regional tournament against other eastern and central African national squads. No one there expects them to score a goal, let alone win a match.
