Abstract:

A former football star finds himself weighing difficult options in Spain after the Civil War. Once the goalie for a championship soccer team in Madrid, but as Spain struggles to get back on its feet following the Civil War, he's reduced to traveling the countryside, hustling money from strangers who think they can get a penalty kick past him. He finds himself in a small Asturian town, where he becomes infatuated with a single mother who watches over her young son and her brother, who is still nursing wounds he suffered as a soldier with the Resistance. He must also has to contend with a member of the Civil Guard who makes no secret of his sexual interest. He decides he'd like to stick around for a while, so he takes a job doing chores for a rough-hewn but good-natured Catholic priest; soon, he gets a troubling offer from the leader of the local branch of the Civil Guard. He must represent the Civil Guard in a local penalty kick competition, and while he's in no position to refuse, he's also not sure he wants to accept.
