The Home Game is a feel-good underdog story about an Icelander’s clumsy attempt to complete his father’s failed mission: to finally get their beloved fishing village a home game on the unused football pitch he built 25 years prior.

Kari Vidarsson embraces his father’s old coaching philosophy and enlists anyone keen to play, including a fisherman and his son, a pessimistic church warden, and a mother of three. In order to get the long-awaited home game, he impulsively registers his team of endearing underdogs in the prestigious FA Cup with only a 50/50 chance of getting to play at their lava field home.
