Sometimes sport can take on a deeper meaning, a deeper connection, and deeper purpose than just sport.
"Street Soccer: New York is an independently-funded documentary film about camaraderie and overcoming incredible circumstances to achieve one's dreams. It's the story of 12 homeless men as they prepare for the 2009 Street Soccer USA Cup. The film shows how sports can change people’s lives and it highlights the effectiveness of the Street Soccer USA organization, which helps the homeless get off the streets, find jobs and reconnect with family members. Watch the trailer below.
The men in this film are an inspiration and represent an entire population of homeless people in America. This film will shatter your judgments of the homeless and how to address the problem of homelessness."
