Eight year old Tala lives with her father in the middle of a war zone. The windows to the outside are reinforced with boards, there is hardly any life on the streets, and machine guns can be heard again and again. When Tala's father, like everyone else, bans the television from the house because the ruling terrorist militia has so ordered, the little girl despairs. Because the TV, where she could always admire her favorite soccer player Messi, was her only view of the world. And so one day Tala decides to get that TV back. She has no idea that she is putting herself and her father in great danger.
