In 1970, Brazil and the world seem to have been turned upside-down, but 12-year-old Mauro's worries have nothing to do with the military regime which controls the country. His biggest dream is to see Brazil become three-time winner of the World Cup.

Suddenly, he is torn from his parents and taken to live in a "strange" and fun-filled community -- Bom Retiro, a district in São Paulo which is home to a large Jewish and Italian community, among others cultures. A moving story about overcoming your limits and solidarity.
