Too Far Away
When Ben's small hometown is evacuated to make room for a coal mine, he finds himself in a new city, where he's no longer a big shot soccer star.
Eleven-year-old Ben and his family move to a new city, but Ben isn't able to fit in at school. When he meets Syrian refugee and fellow soccer player Tariq, he realizes he's not the only one who has been displaced. This unlikely pair grow to be close friends and share their biggest secrets, hopes, and plans for the future.
