    • Synopsis
    • Jose (40): This star striker lives solely for work and his beloved football club 'Juventus Barracas' where he has played out his career and is still very much the club's idol, particularly for all the
      championships he has contested. However, his days are now numbered in the game as his career comes to an end. Medical professionals have ordered that he stop playing due to a serious illness he has concealed for the most part of his footballing career which is tragically becoming more
      severe. But, if this means kissing goodbye to the only way of life he knows, the heroic Jose wants to do it the only way he sees fit- bending it like Beckham with his head in the game.
