HANA, DUL, SED – FUSSBALL UND DIE DVR KOREA

Pyongyang, North Korea. Four young women are connected by an unusual passion: football. They are former players of the first North Korean national football team and were fired after they had failed in the Olympic preliminary contest in Athens. Now they have built a life outside the football court. The film follows the four protagonists over a time of seven years and tells about the experiences they made as athletes in North Korea and as North Korean athletes in championships outside their country.
