Helena, played by Ane Dahl Torp, sits in an empty stadium staring out at the field. | "Home Ground"

"Home Ground," the acclaimed fictional Norwegian soccer drama, stars Norway’s well-known actress Ane Dahl Torp as Helena Mikkelsen, a successful European women’s soccer coach who discovers her achievements are ridiculed by male dominated critics. Her retaliation for respect leads her to become the head coach of an all-male team in a top division European premier league. A single mother, Helena quickly realizes misogyny and hostility dictate her new role, and she finds herself at risk of losing both her daughter and her career.

John Carew (former Norwegian league player ’97-’12) and Axel Bøyum (Eyewitness, Gullruten) also star.
