Back to Maracaña A film about the passion of football

Roberto (40), a divorced and unsuccessful businessman, son of Itay (12), a spoiled teenager who despises his father and hates football, and grandfather Samuel (76), an avid football fan who has just learned he will not live much longer, spontaneously make a trip to Football World Cup in Brazil, their former home country. This unplanned trip becomes a wild journey that will change each one of them.
