Mourade Zeguendi - Champion
Synopsis:

A reflection of our society, the world of football is rich and universal, the place where dreams become reality, as do nightmares. 

During the 90-minute length of a match, football brings people together and opposes them without distinction of social class, age or origin.

Shining star of world football Souliman Ben Arafa peaked before blowing up in mid-flight. His oversized ego, his lack of professionalism and his high roller style got the better of the one we call El Magnifico.

Without a club and without a sponsor while he celebrates turning 33, will Souli bounce back or be crushed like a worm? Now, he is going to have a win another match, the one of his life. Beware of offsides!
