Storyline:

Marco is an assistant coach in Spain’s top basketball league. One day, after getting drunk, his frustration and bad attitude get him involved in a traffic accident that lands him in court. He loses his job and his girlfriend and is sentenced to the worst possible punishment for his ego: coaching a group of intellectually-disabled players that have never touched a ball before. Through their innocence, tenderness and plenty of good humour, they will teach Marco about the things that really matter. They are the true Champions of Life.


Winner of 3 Goya Awards: Best Film, Original Song and New Actor.

Campeones (Champtions) is one of the biggest box-office successes in Spain last year, and winner of the Goya for Best Film.
