Every year, the Homeless World Cup is being organized. It is a massive event, with over 70 participating countries, held annually in a different part of the world. In the World Cup, held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, also the Lithuanian team participated. The core of it consisted of people struggling with addiction to alcohol and drugs. Looking at the Lithuanian national team members, the film reveals the challenges that addicted people are facing in life. In this peculiar world, full of temptations and dangers to "slip", it is incredibly difficult to manoeuvre and remain on the road of chosen sobriety. One, quite unexpected, means of combating addictions is football. The World Cup is emotional, temperamental and dynamic space in which the human drama takes place. People who come here do not fit anymore into the standard definitions of "alcoholic" or "homeless".

The film was shot with 16mm film, HD video, DSLR.
