OFFSIDE tells the story on the frozen conflict in Nagorno Karabakh from the perspective of two football teams: the Azeri team FK Qarabag Agdam and the Armenian team FK Karabakh Stepanakert. OFFSIDE reveals the current situation through the eyes of six people; each one connected to the respective football teams – exemplary for the daily lives of players and coaches, fighters and refugees, sons and daughters, wives and widows.
