It’s July 17th, 1994. Today, Italy plays against Brazil in the World Cup finals. In the desolated settings of a small, sun-burnt village on the Southern coast of Italy, a group of boys and girls goes about their everyday adventures. For one of them, Martino, this will be the last day in their company, because his family is about to leave the village to move to the North of the country. For him, this is going to be the last day of childhood, the last one of his innocence as well as the last one of his summer. Martino is with Alice and Fabio. This summer their games on the beach have had a different taste, permeated by a new sense of mischief. Their bodies have started feeling the pressures of growing up. The whole summer was not enough for Martino to confess his feelings to Alice, and Fabio’s behavior has made things even more complicated. In the heat of this last afternoon, Martino must shoot his very own penalty.
