Audio Tracks 

Football Brothers shows a story of two teenage brothers' struggle to get to renowned football teams. They live in a small village in the South of Poland and reached the top of possibilities in a local team. Now the next big step awaits them. But if they would be chosen, they should move from their home and start living in another cities. They cannot apply to the same team, so they would be completely on their own. Apart from rivalry between the brothers we observe attempts to fulfill their father's dream – he tried to play football professionally years ago but failed. Now his sons are his only hope.
