About the film: Amadou and Moussa are spotted in Mali by a football scout, separated from their families and brought to Madrid to become stars. They embark on a journey through Spain, Portugal and Northern Europe which will show them first-hand the world of shadows behind the beautiful game; a business which does not see in them two young kids, but two ‘Black Diamonds’.
