Description

A road trip featuring three generations of men trying to understand each other. Roberto is an embarrassment to his 12-year-old son Itay and a disappointment to Samuel, his soccer-mad father. Though he loathes soccer, Itay finds himself on a plane from Israel to Brazil during school holidays with his father and grandfather to watch Samuel’s beloved team play in the World Cup. Their spontaneous trip turns into an eventful journey that changes each of them.
