The main characters are Martha, a young Italian-American manager (who inherited the football team from the dead father), and Gianni a former worldwide famous goalkeeper now reduced to the sad role of a glory of the past: a good man ruined by the alcoholic vice.

Trivia

During the first days of shooting came on the set Angelo Infanti (italian award winning actor) to play the role of "Rocco" (the field keeper) but, when he returned to his house in Verona, he had a car accident and he went to an hospital for several days. He was substituted by actor Enzo Giraldo but, as a tribute to Infanti, the only one pose he made was included in the final cut. See more »
