Sons of Football

Original title: Hijos del fútbol
Synopsis:

An emotional tribute to football, a passion capable of summing up everything that makes us human and of marking different generations of the same family.

Sons of Football is the story of the unbounding passion of a fan father who fears he is infecting his children with the incurable virus transmitted to him by his grandfather, and a reflection on the globalization of football, its values and its darker side. Written as a diary, it tells the vibrant and emotional story of a man besieged by existential doubts when he discovers that the world of his eldest son is increasingly conditioned by a ball and team colors.

Readers, meanwhile, will remember their childhood dreams of impossible goals, the schoolyard matches alternating with the visions of the stadium as an adult, and the names of footballers comingle with the names of writers who have contributed to feeding our passion for the beautiful game.
