Losing their vision didn’t stop a group of blind boys’ aims of becoming professional footballers. Led by their impassioned coach, the amateur team unexpectedly win gold at the 2015 ASEAN Para Games. However, they have their title to defend at the 2017 ASEAN Para Games in Kuala Lumpur and must improve their world rankings to qualify for the World Blind Football Championship.
