This smart and sexy film from Switzerland tells the story of Mario and Leon, two soccer players aspiring to the A-league. As their work and home life collide, their chemistry on and off the field awakens in Mario a lust and desire that cannot be denied.
As Mario falls deeper for Leon, his commitment to the game is called into question, and Leon and Mario are forced to hide their budding relationship. Can their romance survive in the conservative world of premier league soccer?
Mario is a powerful story that sensitively examines love under pressure, and what we are willing to compromise for the heart.
