Plot Synopsis

RISE AS ONE is a series of six 30-minute documentaries that explore how soccer has inspired humanity to perservere. Episodes include: "Power of Unity," which chronicles how the Japanese Women's national team overcame intense personal pain to inspire their country after the 2011 tsunami and Fukushima nuclear disaster; "Breaking Barriers," which documents how the 1998 World Cup matchup between USA and Iran broke soft diplomacy on the world stage amid volatile politics and intense scrutiny; "One Nation," which highlights how the French Men's national team used the 1998 World Cup to help heal the racial splits within their nation and sport; "Match for Peace." which explores how how an exhibition match between World Cup champions Brazil and war torn Haiti helped lift the spirits of the island nation; "Forever Heroes," which shows how the new survivor-led club overcame tragedy to capture the African Cup of Nations, just miles from the site where a plane crashed killing all but three men from Zambia's national team; and "World War Truce," which recounts how German and British soldiers held a secret cease-fire to play a friendly soccer game on a frozen Christmas in World War I.
