Outcasts United is the story of a refugee soccer team, a remarkable woman coach, and a small southern town turned upside down by the process of refugee resettlement. It's a tale about resilience, the power of one person to make a difference, and the daunting challenge of creating community in a place where people seem to have little in common.
