The documentary depicts the emotional and now legendary football journey of an African nation, spanning five decades. It is the path taken by a country bound together by a tragedy that shook the nation, which then spurred them to honor their fallen heroes by playing the beautiful game at the highest level. This is the recounting of Zambia’s rich football history, derailed by the tragic plane crash off the coast of Gabon in 1993, only to be triumphant in the same country at the momentous AFCON (Africa Cup of Nations) 2012 tournament.

The film was also screened at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year.

  2. I would buy the documentary. And just after they won, i dont care any more if Chipolopolo wins or looses; the heart has been content, tears wiped out and the heart full of joy. It has been a great feeling; a recovery from that nasty episode. RIP heroes.
