Synopsis
After an international and successful career as a football manager, Bernard Challandes - from Neuchâtel, Switzerland - embarked at the age of 70 on a new perilous challenge : coach the Kosovo National Football Team, the youngest football national team in the world.
The film follows his new mission as well as his personal life: the portrait of a man who constantly delays the ineluctable final whistle on his life and his career.
