Christian Ferro is “the champion”, a young and talented goal scorer, unruly, rich and spoiled: a true football rock star, full of genius and unruliness and a new idol, watched closely by an entire city and every member of the series A football league. Valerio Fioretti is a solitary and shy professor, with money problems and the shadow of his past hanging over him.

One day, the professor is joined by the young goal scorer when – after yet another stunt – the club president decides that its time to give him some discipline. Sparks fly between the two to begin with, but soon they begin to create a bond that will help them both to grow and change.

All attendees are required to wear a mask during the screening of the films. College of Charleston ID holders are required to leave their information for contact tracing.
