Diamantino is not an ordinary person, he’s got the heavenly gift of moving a soccer ball around very well... A gift that will disappear overnight, leaving this soccer star high and dry and forcing him to search for a new purpose in life. This will mean the beginning of a fabulous odyssey and a political satire starring a player whose pose, earrings and haircut are all reminiscent of Cristiano Ronaldo.
