Superclásico / Ole Christian Madsen

Christian is the owner of a wine store that is about to go bankrupt and he is equally unsuccessful in just about every other aspect of life. His wife, Anna, has left him. Now, she works as a successful football agent in Buenos Aires and lives a life of luxury with star football player Juan Diaz. One day, Christian and their 16-year-old son get on a plane to Buenos Aires. Christian arrives under the pretense of wanting to sign the divorce papers together with Anna, but in truth, he wants to try to win her back.
