They are fourteen, as many women as men, young and less young, to have answered the call of Massimo Furlan, a Swiss-Italian director who came to take them on a strange adventure: to replay the semi-final of the 1982 Football World Cup, a legendary match between France and West Germany.
Raiders of the Lost Game recounts the journey of this motley group through a half-theatrical, half-sporting experience, the culmination of which is a show given at the Stade Rennais which will serve as the Pizjuán stadium in Seville, trodden by Platini, Rocheteau, Giresse, Trésor, Battiston… in front of a crowd of supporters transported forty years back to relive the heroic defeat of France commented on by Thierry Roland and Jean-Michel Larqué.
