The feature-length documentary, produced by JaJa Film Productions and F&ME, tells the story of the Brazilian Girls’ team as they prepared to take part in the 2014 Street Child World Cup in Rio de Janeiro ahead of last year’s Brazil FIFA World Cup. As hosts, they welcomed teams of street children from 18 countries across the world to play football and stand united for their rights.
