Jamel is a French archaeologist of Algerian origin. He heads to Algeria to carry out excavation work on the magnificent Roman ruins at Timgad. He is reunited with his past when a new opportunity sees him fast-tracked into the role of managing the local football team, "The Juventus of Timgad". Juggling with the harsh realities of everyday life, the kids don't have a shirt or football boot between them. But they are talented dribblers. Rich with ancient monuments and bearing the scares of recent wars, the land reveals to Jamel its complex past. The young people are growing up in a new, reconciled, World Cup winning Algeria.
