festival & awards:

Thanks to long years of patient hard work, moving in the shadowlands of the history of football and of the 20th Century, hovering between the rigorous style of a documentary and the spirit of cinema, the film narrates the events which took place during the 1942 World Cup, which was never recognised by the official sport bodies and which for years remained wrapped in legend without anyone knowing who the winner was.
