Facundo was a rugby player for more than ten years. But one rainy afternoon in a field a violent high tackle made him lose consciousness. The stadium fell silent. When he woke up he was definitely not the same. He murmured absurd words like "establishing shot" or "character moral need". After that, he simply walked away from the fields, started shooting films and he never looked back.

The selfish youth coach Franz Müller (55) is fired from the football club which he dedicated his whole life. Unable to find his way in a world without football, he travels to a remote village in Argentina to search a talented 14-year-old boy he heard from in order to get his job back. Through his experiences in a village on the other side of the world and through his relationship with the young Oscar, he will painfully learn to be a father.
