THE HOME GAME
US PREMIERE Twenty-five years ago, Vidar Gylfason of the tiny fishing village of Hellissandur (population: 369) in West Iceland created a real-life field of dreams for his town by constructing a national FA Cup regulation soccer pitch, but no team ever set foot on the field. Now, Vidar’s spirited scion Kari is determined to bring soccer glory to Hellissandur and fulfill his father’s original dream. Putting a competitive team together won’t be easy but with Icelandic pluck, humor, and the spirit of inclusion, anything may be possible! – Jaie Laplante
