Mario

Mario is a striker struggling to get into the club’s first team, but then Leon appears, another striker who will compete with him for the job. However, unexpectedly, they fall in love, and their love story threatens to destroy their future professional dreams. When the first rumours start flying around, Mario sees his career in danger, but he does not want to lose Leon for anything in the world. Should he come out and risk his career? Or keep his head down and continue to deny who he is and whom he loves? The love story between Mario and Leon clearly sets out the reasons a professional footballer might have for not declaring his sexual status openly. The club’s board, the sponsors, their own team-mates and even the fans are all pressure factors that do not make it easy to make that decision.
