Naples. At the age of nearly 50, Sandro is still the leader of the Apache, the group of ultras with whom he has spent his whole life in the stadium: a life of violence, fights, passion and unshakeable values. But now that a DASPO (stadium ban) prevents him going anywhere near the terraces, those values start to seem less certain. For the first time he feels the need for a normal life, a relationship, maybe even a family. And he has met Terry, a beautiful woman beautiful who is afraid of nothing. Angelo is 16 and considers the Apache his family: Sandro is his guide, the person who took the place of his brother Sasà, who died years earlier during a clash at an away game. ULTRAS is the story of their friendship, of a faith and a love that follows the rhythm of the final weeks of a football season, and of the inevitable meeting with destiny that awaits both of them.
