The short is set in Naples in a hot summer afternoon of the 5th of July 1982; the city is tired and full of flags. In a few hours the historical match Italia-Brasile, will take place, worth the world football championship in Spain. Meanwhile in a park, some children are playing football but, during their game unfortunately there will be a small accident, certainly not such to ruin the evening joy for Italy’s incredible victory. Amongst the general enthusiasm what does a weak, uneasy sigh matter?
