Synopsis:
From Macao to London, Geneva and Shanghai, this dectective story into a hermetic and secret world investigates what is bound to become a scandal of international proportions. 2011 has marked a revolution in the worlds of both amateur and professional sports. The legalization of internet betting in Europe is going to generate a yearly income of 500 billions euros. That's more than drug trafficking. Based on a system that is similar to the stock exchange, sport betting is exploding with the global flow of money. It is all about major profits and the hope of easy cash in the privacy of one's living room. But for a few to win big ...many have to loose. What about sports itself ? Suspicion of cheating is already poisoning international competitions and legal trials in Belgium and Germany are multiplying. No sport, no athlete is left unscathed. The question has to be asked: Will this be the death of competitive sports?
