The Champion

15 SEP - 5:15PM
21 SEP - 7:30PM

Young, talented and undisciplined, rich and spoilt, Christian Ferro is the champion, a rock star of football, an unruly genius. Valerio, is both shy and solitary, and is struggling to manage his economic problems. He has a shadow from his past looming over him, but he is the professor who is assigned to the young goalscorer when, after yet another stunt, the club decides that the time has come to give him some discipline. The two of them, who could not be more different from each other, will find themselves tied together, forming a bond that grows and changes them both.
