The Diagonale’20 was cancelled due to official measures to contain the spread of COVID-19.

Robin’s RSV is a “dirty rotten bunch.” A description that comes from the heart. The soccer team stagnates in the lower leagues, sometimes its greater successes are denied, then group moral begins to sink. Jasmin Baumgartner accompanies president Robin, a good-hearted show-off, and his multinational team for several seasons. She not only becomes witness to powerful pep talks, but also fathomless racism on the sidelines.
