Men's feature

When Leon, a talented striker newly arrived from a soccer team in Germany, shows up in the locker room of his new Swiss club, he attracts both suspicion and admiration from his teammates, who marvel at his on-field play even if they resent his sudden status as the star forward. But he attracts something more in his assigned roommate Mario, and the pair develop an intense bond---not only as the team’s top prospects for advancing to an elite professional league, but also as clandestine lovers. Before long, their relationship is discovered by their team members and rumors begin to spread beyond the locker room. Mario realizes this jeopardizes his career as a professional football player, but he does not want to lose Leon at any price. He has to make a decision. Does he risk his fame as a soccer star or the only man he has truly loved?

In Swiss German with English subtitles.
