NPR and Futuro Studios present The Last Cup, a podcast series about soccer and the immigrant experience, starting November 10th.

Lionel Messi is known as the best soccer player of his generation, but there's one dream he's never achieved: winning a World Cup.

Host Jasmine Garsd tells the story of Messi as a young immigrant who left Argentina on his way to soccer stardom. Now, he faces his last chance to win a World Cup - and the respect of his home country.

Leaving your country, the search for success, and the dream of returning one day; Garsd sets out to explore these themes in her own life as an Argentine immigrant in the U.S.

What does home mean when you are so far away, for so long?

The Last Cup is a dual language limited series. All episodes will be released in English and Spanish.
