THE LONGEST PENALTY SHOT IN THE WORLD

  • Comedy
  • | 2005

Directed by Roberto Santiago

Fernando is the reserve goalkeeper for a regional Division Three soccer team. He has not played one single minute of the whole season. But during the final game of the league, the regular goalkeeper is injured and the referee calls for an unfair penalty shot against them. The indignant fans invade the playing field, interrupting the game. The penalty shot is scheduled for the following week and Fernando, the reserve goalkeeper, will have to guard the goal. Now everything depends on him. If he blocks the penalty shot, the team will rise to Division Two for the first time ever. If he doesn’t, a whole year’s efforts will be wasted.

THE LONGEST PENALTY SHOT IN THE WORLD is the story of that week. For seven days, Fernando is a local hero and finally, the girl of his dreams gives him a chance.
