Streetball is fast-paced documentary that tells the story of South Africa's 2008 Men's Homeless World Cup team. The Homeless World Cup is an annual soccer tournament that draws teams from over 56 countries and is composed of young people who are homeless and excluded from society. The South Africa squad consists of orphans, recovering drug addicts, ex-convicts, and former gangsters, all of whom band together to represent their country, proving that no one is beyond redemption.
