A journey through Europe with the journalist Kristina Hedberg who decided to look into places where she used to turn her blind eye; the scandals involving Juventus in 2004-2005, and the criticism at FC Barcelona. She found herself being offered free CL-tickets by Luciano Moggi and discussing the deeper meaning of Barca with a local nun. Her journey took place during the year when the ground is trembling beneath international football. Blatter and Platini were suspended and the major organisations have to restore their reputation after the corruption scandals. Out of the catharsis comes a new leader, Gianni Infantino, who talks about a new era of transparency. When Kristina looks into his past and start asking questions she ends up being escorted by security out of the premises of Uefa in Nyon.
