Putellas currently captains the Barcelona women's team and is the most capped player for the Spanish national team. The series chronicles the transformation of a football player into a global icon. For the first time a woman becomes a global football idol who shapes the future of her sport and the image of women in sport.
Alexia realizes her lifelong dream: to play at Camp Nou. A historic moment for her and her family, and a milestone in the history of football and sport. While she and her team seek to qualify to win their second consecutive Champions League, Alexia becomes the first and greatest female icon of this sport. An icon that neither she nor her teammates had growing up.
This is the year of Alexia's transformation: she goes from being a great player to being a global icon. She wins football’s biggest award, the Ballon d'Or, and we see what has led her to be the best player in the world. We follow the day-to-day of this metamorphosis, the lights and shadows of success, during the course of a very demanding season in which Alexia will live moments of authentic obsession toward achieving her goals.
Alexia faces the worst competition scenario of her life, and is forced to abandon it due to injury. She leans on friends as their fans give them the greatest reward: they have beaten all audience records in Women’s Football. At her lowest, Alexia lives through the explosion of her sport thanks to the barriers she has broken, and the season ends with the greatest milestone of any female football player: she wins her second Ballon d'Or.
