About the Film
12-year-old Ben and his family must leave their village because of the surface lignite mining in
the western region of Germany. Ben has trouble fitting into his new school and equally new
soccer club, while his old friends are already moving on. Then Tariq, a young Syrian, is seated
next to him in school, and the two slowly bond over their shared interests–and shared losses.
This event is co-sponsored by UNC’s Department of Geography, UNC’s Department of Germanic & Slavic Languages & Literatures, and UNC’s Institute for the Environment and is also made possible by the Goethe-Institut
