The true story of teenage football talent Martin Bengtsson's life-and-death journey through a modern-day football industry where everything, and everyone, has a price tag.

Martin (a scalding Erik Enge) is one of the most promising football talents Sweden has ever seen. At sixteen, his lifelong dream comes true when he is bought by one of Italy’s most prestigious clubs, FC Inter Milan. As he adjusts to his new reality, Martin learns that his dream
comes at a very high price in terms of sacrifice, pressure and most of all loneliness, and soon
he begins to question the allure of the life he yearned for.

I loved how this film was far more about psychology than the sport itself, and it gave me an insight and perspective into a game I love.

Cinematically, it is compelling, exciting and visceral, exploring a world from the perspective of
players idolised by millions ofkids across the globe.
- Paolo Rotondo

2020 | Drama | 116 min | Dir. Ronnie Sandahl
