Synopsis

In 1990, in southern Italy, the self-reconciliation story of a minor-league footballer at the end of his career intersects the coming-of age story of a twelve years old boy, son of Albanian immigrants, who dreams to become a great footballer. In an almost father-son parental bond of complicity and hostility, a deep friendship is born that will bind them forever. The film is set against the backdrop of 1990 World Cup and it is not primarily a film about football, the football pitch remains throughout story a place where the action on the field will inform about characters ’s emotional journey off the field. Addressing life themes, such as social, cultural and economic diversity, this film manages to pull out magic from reality in counterpoint with a naturalistic hand held style for the domestic drama and the intimate dramatic moments, connecting the audience to life
