Guys And Balls
Ecki is a young man who works in a bakery in Dortmund and plays soccer on his local team. Already under pressure for playing badly, his homophobic team members find out that he is gay and throw him off the team. With the help of his sister and a cranky former soccer star, he tries to form an all-gay soccer squad to challenge his old team in a grudge match. Ecki's journey in self-realization is filled with wonderful surprises and interesting characters in this delightful romantic comedy from Germany - a cross between the recent "Summer Storm" and now classic "Beautiful Thing."
