When facing reality, boys become men. Djalal was obsessed with war toys even before he could walk. He was the only child of a middle class Spanish family, raised and admired by his parents. He was given all kind of toy guns, pretending to be a soldier in dangerous missions. One day he fulfills his fantasies and goes to the Afghan War, but discovers that reality doesn't match his boyish dreams. Djalal returns to his parents home to realize that nothing is the same. The economic crisis struck his family and he is forced to take action. The game is over and he needs to find his own place in the real world. Who is to blame for your own failures?
GAME OVER is an international coproduction.
