Fernando is a substitute goalkeeper for a football team in the Regional Third Division. He hasn´t played for a single minute in the whole season. But, in the last game of the League, the regular goalkeeper is injured and the referee calls for an unfair penalty against the team. Indignated, the fans pour onto the field and the game is cancelled. The penalty has to be repeated a weeklater, and Fernando, the substitute goalie, will have to stand between the posts. Now it all depends on him. If he stops the penalty, the team will riseto second division for the first time. Otherwise, a year´s efforts will have gone down the drain. El penalti más largo del mundo is the story of this week.Seven days in which Fernando becomes the local hero, for the first time getting a chance with the girl of his dreams.
