There’s a ripple of disquiet in the locker room when Leon, a new striker, joins the football team. Sharing a flat with keen rival Mario sets the scene for an unexpected love affair, but the path of gay love in this macho world is not an easy one. Mario is unwilling or unable to acknowledge the implications of what is happening. But pretend girlfriends don’t fool everyone. And gossip, along with the threat of blackmail, unbalances the team’s morale. With the prospect of a professional career a strong possibility, will Mario forsake the hope of emotional satisfaction for professional gain?

Marcel Gisler, Switzerland, 2018, 119 min. Swiss German & German spoken, Dutch subtitles. With Max Hubacher, Aaron Altaras, Jessy Moravec, Jürg Plüss, Doro Müggler.
