Mario has fallen in love for the first time, with Leon, the new striker from Germany. They begin a passionate love affair but when rumours start spreading on their blooming romance in a still macho and narrow-minded industry, Mario finds himself having to decide whether to lose Leon, or jeopardise his career as a professional football player.

“This heart-warming rollercoaster of a film, set on and off the pitch, offers a dynamic and realistic picture of how gay professional footballers are still seen as out of step in the 21st century.” – BFI London Film Festival
