the blind football coach

2021 - 49 min.


Uber used to be an avid soccer player, but one day he suddenly went blind in both eyes.
In his small village in the Andean foothills of Colombia, he is like a second father to the youngsters. And for more than forty years, a passionate soccer coach: he teaches them discipline and keeps them away from drugs and crime. Since Uber doesn’t have a diploma, he is not accepted as an official coach. So he doesn’t get the balls he needs for training. And he has no money to buy one.
