The documentary tells the incredible story of the Bari soccer team in the 2012-2013 championship. After the club declared bankruptcy, the team, without any salaries, kits or the financial resources to face the prospect of a season in the Italian Serie B, creates a social media campaign with the aim to find a new buyer and to get people to come back to the stadium. As the #buybariteam campaign gathers both national and international celebrity endorsements, the results on the football field fuel a remarkable rise up the table with the team moving from second to last to a place in the playoffs with a chance to win promotion and play directly in Serie A.
