Synopsis

German soccer hopeful Leon has joined a Swiss football team as their star hopeful. He quickly catches the attention of his teammate Mario and the two men develop an instant bond. The two friends move in together and not long it becomes apparent that there is more than friendship between them. As they struggle to keep their relationship a secret, these tensions begin to take their toll, personally and professionally.. This thoughtful romantic drama unpacks the complex and damaging nature of homophobia in the sports arena and the costly price involved in rising to the top of your game while staying in the closet.
