Inspired by the 2006 elections in Congo, a group of film students track down members of the 1974 Leopards, Zaire's national soccer squad, the first team from sub-Saharan Africa to qualify for the World Cup.

The team's captain, however, has fared better and is running for political office in Kinshasa. Deftly weaving past and present.
