Watch the Trailer

The Zimbalist brothers present a fast and furious film that captures the heart and soul of Colombia. During a time of unrest in the region, all the Colombian people had was their national soccer team. It just so happened that they were funded by cocaine kingpin Pablo Escobar. Their best player, Andres Escobar, made a mistake during the 1994 World Cup that turned out to be fatal. After committing an "own goal" in a game against the US, Andres was murdered on the streets of his own country.
