About the film:
When local politicians aim to close a rural police station because its officers spend more time retrieving wandering farm animals than nabbing thieves, cops Jacob (Fares Fares) and Lasse (Göran Ragnerstam) instigate a phony crime wave to justify their station's existence. At first, the plan is a smashing success.

But problems arise when another cop, hot-headed Benny (Torkel Petersson), who doesn't know about Jacob and Lasse's plot, begins to investigate the pseudo-crime spree

Sweden 2015 | Documentary / Comedy  | 1hr 36m

About the film: A group of young men who fled the war in Somalia have ended up in a rural town in Sweden where integration is tough. Something needs to be done. Local entrepreneur Patrik Andersson gets an idea, why not use sport as a bridge to get people
closer to each other?

The goal: to create the first ever Somali national team in bandy and make it to the World Championship in Siberia. This is a story about racism and fear, but it's also about bravery and doing something that hasn't been done before.
