When a soccer player runs onto the field – nimbly moving their bodies, masterfully steering the game – what do they see before their inner eye? For world football star Diamantino it is pink fluffy clouds and frolicking puppies. Until at the world cup finals he suddenly loses his magic mojo. With the abrupt end of his career, he sets on a delirious journey searching for purpose in the ‘real’ world. DIAMANTINO is a delightful satire about a fallen star whose naive, yet persistent ambition to improve the world finds him confronted with financial corruption, personal greed, political crises, neo-fascism, and genetic modification in the world of sports.
