Antonio is seventeen years old and has a dream: to be a footballer in a great team. He lives in a small town in a province of Campania, a land where getting away is not always that easy. What makes the situation even more complex is the beautiful Miriam, a sweet but highly problematic mother whom he loves more than any other person in the world. In addition, Carlo, Antonio's father, abandoned them when he was very young and Miriam is obsessed with the idea of ​​rebuilding her family. Suddenly life seems to give Antonio and Miriam a real opportunity: a talent scout, Michele Astarita, is looking for young promises to bring in the Primavera of Parma and when he sees him play, Antonio in the field is a real revelation. But every dream has a very high price to pay.
