    • Synopsis
    • After years of meticulous research, exploring the intricate history of 20th century soccer and walking that delicate line between rigorous documentary style and the spirit of true cinema, this film finally presents the true story of the 1942 World Soccer Championship. The story never
      acknowledged by the official sports organizations, shrouded for decades in legend without any real winner being stated, is finally fully revealed.
      The recent discovery of a “skeleton with a movie camera” in the midst of dinosaur fossils in Patagonia, Argentina surprisingly provides the missing piece of the long uncompleted puzzle that is the forgotten World Cup of 1942.
