Swedish Iranian Mustafa travels to the world’s largest youth football tournament, the annual Gothia Cup, in Göteborg in the hope of losing his virginity.

But why do the girls fancy a dangerous seducer from Italy and not a nice Iranian boy from Lerum? Ciao Bella is about wants and expectations, and the search for identity in a love story with a genuine sense of the here and now.
