IF LIFE GIVES YOU LEMONS

Category: Edition 2019

Synopsis
Antonio is seventeen years old and has a dream: to be a footballer in a great team. He lives in a small town in a province of Campania. He lives with his mother, Miriam, a sweet but strongly problematic woman whom he loves more than any other person in the world. Carlo, Antonio’s father, abandoned them when he was very young and Miriam is obsessed with the idea of rebuilding her family. Suddenly life seems to give Antonio and Miriam a real opportunity: a talent scout, Michele Astarita, is looking for young promises to bring to the youth academy of the Parma team and focusing their interest on Antonio.
