In greater Fortaleza in the north of Brazil there were 12,777 children and adolescents recorded to be in child labor, living and working on the streets in 2013. ‘Road to Rio’ follows 9 of them who won the chance to play in the 2014 Street Child World Cup. The teens go on an inspiring, emotional and often amusing journey whilst they prepare and play in the tournament. This is more than a fascinating window into the lives of street kids; this is their chance to shine.

A timeless documentary showing the effect team work and sense of purpose can have on the human soul. Featuring commentary from Pele, Bebeto, Zico and Gilberto Silva.
