When a big-hearted but dimwitted Portuguese soccer hunk blows it in the World Cup finals, he goes from superstar to laughingstock overnight. His sheltered worldview is further shattered after learning about the European refugee crisis and he resolves to make amends by adopting an African refugee, only to find that his new 'son' is actually an undercover lesbian tax auditor investigating him on the suspicion of corruption. From there, he gets swept up in a gonzo comic odyssey.

A bizarre original script that is instantly interesting for the billions of soccer fans because of the protagonist is a Cristiano Ronaldo look-alike and a conspiracy to create a fantasy National Soccer Team. Worth a watch.

When I was really young, my daddy... liked to take me to see churches, gardens, palaces... Things like that. He wasn't too religious, but he really liked churches. He enjoyed looking at the painted ceilings. He'd say: "Diamantino, these paintings are sublime! They're so very beautiful that...
they give people faith!" His favorite ceiling was the Sistine Chapel. He told to me how, today, there are no more painters like Mr. Michelangelo.

... a team of xxyyzzs of Diamantino that will annihilate any team, bringing joy to our country through football, the opium of the people! For a happier Portugal! For a more xenophobic Portugal! So that at the right moment, our people vote "yes", for the EU exit!
