New York Premiere

Daniel and Julio were raised as brothers and play football for their slum’s team: Barrio La Ceniza. The opportunity of their lives arrives when a football scout invites them to try out with the city's best team: Caracas Football Club. In this dirty football pitch they must choose what is more important: family, revenge or the dream of their lives. Venezuela’s entry for Best Foreign Film tells a bittersweet tale of a brother’s love and loyalty being put to the test.

“The inspirational story gets a considerable boost from some dynamic filmmaking, which contrasts effectively with the raw, naturalistic acting to undeniably powerful effect.” —The Hollywood Reporter
