About the film

Production Service by Superfilmes. 


Sergio and his dad Simão have not seen each other for 20 years. The 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil offers a pretext for the son, who lives in Spain, to spend some time with his father, reviving their old habit of watching soccer matches together when he was still a little boy. As they begin to bond again, their conversations lead to the past and the unsolved issues caused by the distance. Running in parallel with the World Cup matches, their meetings made it clear that something escaped from the initial plan. This trip can bring not only reconciliation, but also an exploration into uncharted territory.
