Synopsis

Once he arrives on Algerian soil, Jamel, a French archaeologist of Algerian origin, comes to carry out excavations on the beautiful Roman ruins of the village of Timgad. The past is offered to him, while the present comes down hard on him when he pushed into the role of football trainer for the local team 'La Juventus de Timgad'. Boys who juggle with poverty, who do not have jerseys or running shoes, but play with talent. Between antique remains and injuries of recent battles, Jamel discovers on this ground the winding roots and young shoots of an Algeria that dreams to be reconciled and become a football champion.
