STORY DESCRIPTION:

Durante I mondiali di Calcio del 2002 disputati in Corea e in Giappone, Anja, una giovane donna che vive in Europa, traumatizzata dalla proposta di matrimonio del ragazzo che le chiede la mano durante una partita di calcio. Così Anja decide di partire alla ricerca di un giovane ragazzo che non sia contagiato dalla “febbre” del pallone, di certo non un compito facile durante i mondiali di calcio. Mentre la squadra tedesca inaspettatamente avanza nel torneo giungendo alla finale, la nostra eroina incontra però uomo dopo uomo solo tifosi

During the 2002 FIFA World Cup in Korea and Japan, Anja, a young woman living in Europe, who has been traumatized by her boyfriend's failed wedding proposal during a football match, decides to embark on a journey to find the one single man who has not caught the football "fever" – not an easy task during the World Cup. As the German team unexpectedly marches through the tournament all the way to the Final game (some would say: "as German football teams always tend to do"), our heroin meets one man after another who disappoints her by turning out to be another "closet"-football fan
