Home Games is a broken fairytale depicting a turning point in the life of Alina, the rising star of Ukrainian women football, who grew up in a poor suburb of Kyiv, playing with boys, until a women's football trainer signed her as a pro in Atex Kyiv. Alina's career takes off, but suddenly, her mother dies, leaving behind Regina and Renat, 6 and 7, her beloved siblings. Barely out of adolescence, the tomboy becomes a substitute mother and quits football. She soon returns, but will she find the strength to save her family and make her dreams come true when the odds are stacked against her?
