Helena Mikkelsen leaves her job, the coach of a successful women’s football team, to become the first female coach of a Norwegian top-division men’s side.
We follow her story as she moves to a small tight-knit community with strong willed and hard-headed individuals, where she is struggling to balance a life as a single mom with her teenage daughter on the home field, in order to get optimal results on the football field. Home Ground is all about passion, identity, and loyalty. It is about relocating to a small community, trying to gain the respect of others without losing yourself.
