Try Freedom tells the story of La Dorla (in Piedmont dialect, â€œthe weirdâ€) first rugby team, entirely made up of inmates, to be admitted to play an official championship (third category of Italian rugby league). Thirty-five inmates, one coach, training five days a week and the game on Saturdays. The first steps aren't easy. The team is not there, every one plays for himself and they hardly understand the rules. But as time goes by locked up between an heavy past and an uncertain future, team-mates tell their story, they slowly bond together in and outside the field. And their performance improves as well. In spring time first wins. Life in jail starts flowing smooth, and with it the hope. Legs running toward a â€œTryâ€ and the biggest is freedom.
