Homeless FC 曙光球队

A documentary centering on the lives of a group of men in Hong Kong who struggle with poverty and its attendant problems. Homeless FC tracks a year’s development in the life of the Dawn Football Team that was formed to rehabilitate these recovering drug addicts, former gamblers, reforming alcoholics and ex-convicts. In the course of the tumultuous year, these men train with the hope of being selected to represent Hong Kong in the Homeless World Cup at Cape Town, an experience that motivates honest re-assessment of their lives and instills within them new fortitude to start afresh despite continuing adversities.
