    • Synopsis
    • This is the story of Luciana Aymar, the best hockey player of all times, the Magician, the Maradona of field hockey.
      A girl who found in field hockey her place in the world, a shy girl who expressed herself through a stick and a ball.
      This story is about the long road that took her to the very first place.
      Twice a world champion, four times an Olympic medalist, this woman was eight times winner of the world's best player award.
      Owner of a natural talent, which she laboriously polished day after day in training, the girl from Rosario became the dazzling star of the team that changed the history of female sports in Argentina, The Lionesses.
      This documentary is a journey through tournaments, victories and failures, glory and frustration.
      It is, too, an inner journey, the growth process of a woman who unknowingly became a role model by devoting her life to sports.
      Who is Luciana Aymar?
      The one of the least expected feats, the one of the most unlikely moves.
      But who is she really?
      This documentary is a self-discovery journey.
      A trip in which Luciana and the camera embark together, allowing the audience to take a peek into her real self.
