Heroes of Their Own Lives 2. 8+Short Film

Maradona’s Legs

Football is everything to the two eager Palestinian brothers. When the 1990 football World Cup begins, they set out to find the rare “Maradona’s Legs” collectible sticker to complete their sticker album and win the grand prize. But the football craze has everyone else excited as well, and competition to find the sticker is tough. The brothers need to push on and keep their spirits high if they wish to win. During their long search they have to face both supporters and opponents of their own football team as they wear proudly the colours of Brazil. Will luck be on their side and will their team-spirit prevail?
