A three-part series that shows how the penalty shoot-out transformed the greatest sporting tournament on the planet. The Long Walk is the inside story of triumph, disaster, and sudden death. We developed this documentary idea which was commissioned by FIFA. Replete with heroes, villains, psychology, and science; these are the sporting micro-dramas that enrapture and traumatize entire countries. The Long Walk takes a forensic look at one of the most fascinating and nerve-shredding situations in all of the sports. A combination of science, statistics, and psychology with the context and expertise provided by a series of brand-new interviews and original filming with players, coaches, writers, and sport scientists. We shot 45 interviews in 20 countries.
