AFRICA UNITED takes us on an enchanting journey into the dreams and aspirations of a football-crazy coach and his colorful ensemble of players who have to overcome their egos - and hot blood - for a true team spirit. Eventually, the barren country of Iceland may be the unifying factor, when they leave history, race and religion behind to seek victory on the fields and fulfillment in their lives. Icelandic Director Olaf Johannesson has delivered a lively and upbeat documentary that is not so much about learning but more about feeling and sharing a small and simple dream.
