Moe,13, is a daydreamer, and he often fantasizes about being awesome at something just like his idol Zlatan Ibrahimovic. But Moe is everything Zlatan is not: he is a guy with low self-esteem and special needs. Moe finds a pair of soccer shoes that he believes belong to Zlatan. The shoes changes his whole persona. In his too big shoes Moe is as cool as Zlatan. But then, something happens. It´s reported that Zlatan have lost his mojo. Together with Aminah, his only friend, Moe goes on a road trip to give back the shoes. It’s an unforgettable road trip. Finally with a little ‘Ibracadabra’ they get to Stockholm and the arena with Zlatan. During the journey Moe and Aminah get close and discover feelings for each other, but most of all Moe learns that it is not about the shoes. Self esteem comes from yourself.
