September of 2015. Reporter Petra Lszlo's tripping up of Osama as he carried his 7-year-old son across the Hungarian border went viral instantly and the clip was replayed all over the world. The war drove Osama and his family to exile forcing them to cross the border into Turkey where they sought sanctuary in a refugee camp. There, he formed a football team with other exiled football players called Amal, “hope” in Arabic. Nowadays Osama is living in Getafe (Madrid) and works as a football coach. Yet, his dream-come true is, at the same time, a nightmare, because he is still separated from his wife and two children and Amal's players are dispersed throughout Europe, doing what they can to survive.
