This is the story of professional football (soccer) player Jari Litmanen, often referred to as the "king" or "artist”. The film is about what it takes to make it in football but it’s also a personal exploration revealing who Litmanen really is – the family man, the human being. We also delve into the sacrifices he's made in his private life and naturally, about how football has impacted his world. We travel to Lahti, Amsterdam, Barcelona, Liverpool and other footprints of his past and meet his former team-mates, coaches and friends.
