When football becomes a citizen sport! At a time when business seems to be corrupting our relationship with sport, the indomitable Eric Cantona shows us footballers who've managed to resist.

Their names are Mekloufi, Sócrates, Pasic, Caszely, Drogba, Tamburrini, Thaljieh, Afonsinho, Navazo or Lucarelli. 10 players who took part in disputes or fought back against the spheres of power, becoming figureheads of resistance or rebellion, well beyond their sole sporting achievements.

A documentary series / manifesto that reasserts the values of sport among citizens, via 10 stories that are dear to Eric Cantona.
