SLOVENČINA 🇸🇰
Domáci zápas zobrazuje rozhodujúci okamih v živote dvadsaťročnej Aliny, „million dollar baby“ z Kyjeva, ktorá má vďaka vášni pre futbal šancu zachrániť svoju rozvrátenú rodinu pred chudobou. Matka striedavo prebýva vo väzení a na slobode, nevlastný otec – alkoholik je už deväť rokov neschopný nájsť si prácu. Ako útočisko sa pre Alinu javí každodenné hranie futbalu s chlapcami. Keď si miestny tréner všimne jej talent, zapíše ju do Atex Kyiv, jediného ženského klubu v meste. Alina je v súčasnosti pro hráčkou a má možnosť hrať za ukrajinský národný tím. Po smrti matky je však nútená postarať sa o dvoch mladších súrodencov a čas, ktorý by inak trávila na ihrisku, sa rozhodla venovať udržaniu rodiny pohromade. Predáva svoje veci vrátane kopačiek, aby mohla zaplatiť nájom, no napriek všetkému ďalej sníva o futbalovej kariére.

ENGLISH 🇬🇧 🇺🇸
“Home Games” is a broken fairytale depicting a crucial moment in the life of Alina, a 20-year-old “million dollars baby” from Kyiv, whose passion for football has a chance of saving her from poverty. Alina grew up on the streets in a poor suburb of the Ukrainian capital. While her parents were in jail for petty crimes, she started playing football with boys until a women’s football trainer noticed her talent and signed her to Atex Kyiv, the only women’s club in the city. Alina is now a pro player and it looks likely that she will be called up to play for Ukraine’s national team. But suddenly, Alina’s mum dies at the age of 39, leaving behind Alina’s beloved half-brother and sister, Renat and Regina, 6 ans 7 years old. Barely out of adolescence herself, Alina becomes a substitute mother. The children’s father disappears. There is no money, and life is a mess. Alina’s grandma is on hand and tries to help but she’s losing her eyesight. The dysfunctional family lives in a cramped one-room apartment. Alina’s lover, Nadia, lives with them, while nobody knows about their relationship, which o f fe rs the prospect of a new beginning. For a while, Alina quits football. She soon returns, but will she find the strength to save her family ans find her personal redemption? Home Games is more than just a film about girls who play football: it’s a film about lost innocence, about responsibilities: how to make your dreams come true when the odds are stacked against you.
