“A heartfelt and human drama with the texture of truth and characters to care about” –The Guardian
Mario tells the story of two strapping young soccer players, whose unexpected romance threatens their chances of going pro. An absorbing and compassionate drama about longing, Gisler’s film shines a spotlight on the regressive culture of professional sports and explores the personal costs of being forced to conceal one’s true identity.
