What is the talent? What is the mission of the rare specimens named Talent? Devis Moraschino – known as the Alien – is young star of italian football that disappears in the middle of a match. On the trail of a vanished talent, stories of rebirths and revenge intertwine like the best existential noirs. Devis is alive and is looking for a solution to the dilemma that afflicts him: excel in football or subvert its moral rules? A book that intertwines the poetry of the football, the violence of homophobic environments and the example of freedom and vital restlessness of the LGBT+ choice.
