In 1992, the Danish national fodbold team failed to qualify for the European championships. But after Yugoslavia was disqualified under UN sanctions for civil conflict, the Danes found themselves in the tournament by default. What ensued was one of the most improbable runs in sports history. Directed by Kasper Barfoed, who saw the '92 UEFA Euro final as a child, this footy-infused dramedy chronicles Denmark's improbable championship victory. Amid players quitting and returning in defiance of coach Richard Møller Nielsen (Ulrich Thomsen), they still find the back of the net and victories begin lining up. Kim Vilfort (Mikkel Boe Følsgaard) leads the attack for a defensive Danish squad while his 7-year-old daughter fights a losing battle against leukemia. Despite personal tragedies, this ragtag team perseveres until they achieve a triumph, one that has been ingrained in Danish and European soccer lore. This dramatization offers plenty for those of us who believe in miracles against insurmountable circumstances and relish in sporting upsets that defy the very nature of what it means to be a champion.
