Toni Kroos is a phenomenon. You barely notice him on the field, nor in public. He’s modest. Introverted. Reserved. And yet he is the most successful, the most expensive German football player of all times. He is heart and mind of Real Madrid, the biggest football club in the world, where show and spectacle is as important as victory. But not for Kroos. He’s the underdog, the anti-hero.
The film will follow the traces: How did the pale boy from the Baltic Sea coast become a megastar? Which price did he have to pay? An intimate portrait of a sensitive, exceptional football player in an ongoing exceptional world.
