Soccer unites the worlds of La Boca, Buenos Aires, and Genoa, Italy, through extraordinary passion. Famous footballers share their testimonies in this documentary.


Soccer is the "red thread" to enter the deeper reality of the famous barrio La Boca, in Buenos Aires, founded in the mid-19th century by Genoese emigrants in search of fortune. Over time, La Boca has become the symbol of Genoa in South America, while the fans of its football team, Boca Juniors, are considered the hottest in the world. The two worlds are so distant but so close, united by an extraordinary passion for football. Famous footballers such as Diego Alberto Milito and Nicolas Burdisso share their testimonies.
