The Soccs, three times Hauts-de-France champions, are real stars of cricket. But it’s not the trophies that make this team exceptional: the vast majority of it is made up of Afghan refugees. Shahid is one of them. At 14, he fled the war and managed to reach Calais. A few tens of kilometers further, in Saint-Omer, he found a family, the Soccs. In front of Alain de Halleux’s camera, he narrates his journey. In this rural environment, the Saint-Omer Cricket Club Stars amazes and its sporting epics are not always viewed favorably by the locals.
