UNLEASHING THE ROAR OF THE ATLAS LIONS: THE STORY OF MOROCCO'S HISTORIC FOOTBALL TRIUMPH

Lions de L'Atlas tells the unique historical tale about the Moroccan team that surprised friend and foe during the World Cup in Qatar. Morocco was the first African country ever to reach the semi-finals of a world cup football tournament.

This sport surprise of the century is shared through the eyes of Rapper ICE, a passionate storyteller who gets very close to the main characters, the football players. During the World Cup, he sat in the front row of every game and saw how 'his' team, his friends, sent football giants Belgium, Spain and Portugal home. ICE talks with the players while they look back on their adventure. What was their secret? How did they experience their dream? And how did their performance on the pitch affect the morale of the Moroccan community worldwide?

But this series is more than just a football story. The series also shows the enormous impact the Moroccan victory had on its community worldwide. From proud fathers and mothers and cheering dignitaries, to riots in Amsterdam and the Hague. How does the world look at Moroccan football now? Everything is discussed, from matches, emotions, family values and religion, to positive and negative influences, media attention and the difference between playing for a European country and Morocco.
