The ball is in the middle, the referee’s whistle blows, and an hour of battle follows. For seven friends this is the classic Thursday night: the amateur soccer match. They are on the pitch and their wives in the stands, on the field and in life, where more than one of them will have to review his role on and off the pitch.
In addition to Piazza dell’Unità d’Italia and the waterfront, the film reveals hidden or lesser-known corners of Trieste such as the church halls of Don Bosco and that of Santa Rita, the Chiarbola sports centre, which until the opening of Palatrieste was the most important in Trieste, and an antique shop in via Felice Venezian. What we see is a witty and dynamic Trieste.
