Based on the Latin American best-seller by former fútbolista Daniel Baldi, Uruguayan director Carlos Andrés Morelli’s feature debut follows an adolescent soccer prodigy poised for big-league success—so long as his hubris don’t get in his way.
Everyone knows Tito is a whiz on the field, but his father insists he place equal emphasis on his studies. That balance topples, however, once an agent pegs Tito as a major talent and convinces the family to uproot from their rural Nogales home and relocate to Montevideo. Will Tito fulfill his dream? Or will his focus on fútbol to the detriment of everything sabotage his goals?
