SYNOPSIS:

"The Stars" is a story about Jan Banaś – a famous right-wing midfielder of Polish national team, who had German origin and whose goal let Poland take the lead in the match against England in Chorzów in 1973. The film will be a remarkable experience for the fans of football, but also a well-told story of an uneasy path to glory, its ups and downs.

Jan Banaś (Mateusz Kościukiewicz), who is of Polish-German origin, grows up in Silesia. From his childhood, his greatest passion is football, and his greatest rival... a devoted friend, Ginter (Sebastian Fabijański). As time passes by, friends’ competition transfers from the backyard to the stadiums of Silesian football clubs: Polonia Bytom and Górnik Zabrze. However, this is not the end of their rivalry. True emotions emerge when beautiful Marlena (Karolina Szymczak) shows up in the life of both sports stars. When they both court her, Jan and Ginter quickly discover that there are no rules in the game for love. When a serious injury brings Ginter’s career to an end and brings Banaś closer to joining "Górski’s Eagles" team, the main character faces a difficult choice that will determine the rest of his life. What is at stake is participation in the Olympic Games and the Football World Cup.
