    • 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
      fi lm fi nally presents the true story of the 1942 World Soccer Championship. The story never
      acknowledged by the offi cial sports organizations, shrouded for decades in legend without any
      real winner being stated, is fi nally 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.
