Diamantino, the world’s greatest soccer star, loses his magic touch and sees his career collapse in disgrace. In search for a new purpose, he departs on his own anarchist odyssey, where he confronts neo-fascism, the refugee crisis, the Panama papers, and so many other earthly, real myths. A thoughtful extravaganza about the twilight of the idols, a daedalian fairy tale for adults, an epic with holograms and pink nightmares made with film stock and VFX, which illustrates in a unique visual style the pop schizophrenia of our times.
