Synopsis

It is the incredible story of the Jai Alai, a variation of Basque pelota, through its most iconic characters. A great many similarities can be drawn between the biography of the characters and the actual history of the Jai Alai: beginnings in humble surroundings, huge successes all over the world in pelota courts packed to the hilt with publics and losses of identity due to adapting a traditional game to societies with completely different values.
