By the age of 20, he has everything one can dream of: talent, money, fame, love. He is Eduard Streltsov, the rising star of Soviet football and the idol of millions. The whole country with bated breath awaits the victories of the Soviet national team at the upcoming World Championship in Sweden and the duel between Streltsov and Pele. But two days before the departure of the team, ill-wishers break the fate of the athlete.
When the road to football, it would seem, is forever cut off, Streltsov must do the impossible in order to return and prove to everyone that he is a champion. A great athlete who deserves true people's love.
