Nascimento Square

Have a gander:

11th June 2014. The eve of Brazil's homecoming World Cup. Guilherme Schaun, a middle-aged police officer, is interrogating a young political protester – Rafaela Oliveira – in a São Paulo police station. An Occupy protest is raging in the adjacent Praca Charles Miller, a square named after the Englishman who brought football to Brazil.

As Oliveira explains what's happening, Schaun finds himself questioning his choices, and – with the hour of the World Cup approaching fast – history, folklore and the mythology of futebol itself inspire Oliveira to bare her soul and Schaun to make a life-changing decision.
