The documentary reveals how he spent his childhood practicing football for hours, skipping his meals and sometimes school too. The movie further showcases how he honed his natural ability, through sheer determination and commitment to his craft and shaped his attitude to conquer his fears and realise the ultimate dream – to be the best footballer in the world.

On the other hand, ‘Sleeping Giant – An Indian Football Story’ is about the future of Indian football. The movie features the story of two ordinary children from Mumbai who followed their passion, persevered and earned a golden chance to play for famous football clubs in England.
