자살골을 넣었다는 이유로 어이없이 살해 당한 콜롬비아의 축구선수 에스코바. 94년 월드컵은 그에게 죽음으로 가는 문턱이었다. 영화는 당시를 재구성하면서 스포츠 광기의 극단적 모습을 보여준다. Ten days after scoring an own goal against the USA in the 1994 World Cup finals, Columbian footballer Andres Escobar was brutally murdered outside a nightclub in his hometown of Medellin. Sports journalist Richard Sanders delves into Escobar's story and the impoverished lives of Medellin's lower classes, discovering the extent to which Columbian football at all levels is caught up within the political and criminal activity of the nation's most powerful industry: cocaine. Featuring interviews with Escobar's family, friends, national coach and teammates, including flamboyant goalkeeper René Higuita, as well as with athletically gifted, but battle scarred teenagers from Escobar's barrio, Hewitt's documentary closes in on vicious circumstances that seem uncomfortably taken for granted.
