“Goal Dreams” is a feature length documentary about personal and national identity as seen through a football team like no other. Comprised of multiple nationalities, speaking different languages and having no home field, the Palestinian National Football team and its players must overcome obstacles of physical, emotional, cultural and geographic nature just to exist. The film chronicles the lives of four Palestinian players hailing from different parts of the world during the team’s preparation for their most important World Cup 2006 qualification match.
