Directed by Mario Bucci
Danilo, supporter of southern Italy football team Bari, finds out that the players have sold themselves out and that the relegation to Serie B does not have much to do with sports. The Italian legal inquiry exposes how football bets and match fixing have international ramifications: Singapore, Africa, South America and European Leagues. Bari is the most affected town in Italy, but it is just the tip of the iceberg of an organization touching the whole world of football. Danilo leaves to find out the truth, from the suburbs to the heart of modern football, with a scarf around his neck and only one question: can I still believe in what I see?
