We follow the life of Corso Manni.Until a decade or so before our story began, he was a star in theworld of soccer prosecutors. Corso is a passionate man; soccer hasbeen his world since he was a child. Stadiums and locker rooms havebeen the places of his childhood and education. As the dressingrooms and backstage are for the children of actors. This is whoCorso Manni is. A predestinate. Married to the beautiful Elena DiGregorio, daughter of Dino, the tycoon of the most powerful footballagency in Italy, Corso had seen, all of a sudden, his life collapsing.An injustice, lies, an indelible stain. He had lost everything: hiscareer was over, his relationship with his father Francesco, who hadbetrayed him for a few pennies and his marriage to Elena wereover.
