People in three remote areas of the planet (the Amazon, the Sahara, and the Mongolian steppes) try to get to places where they can watch the World Cup (soccer). Much humor, humanity, and technological frustration ensue. The on location cinematography is worth the price of admission and no knowledge of or love for soccer is required, although the point might be for us that we are the only country where this isn't THE big event.
