Solo - Out of a Dream

SOLO - OUT OF A DREAM portrays the lives and history of Leonardo and Anselmo who, 20 years ago, were the main characters in the documentary SOLO - THE LAW OF THE FAVELA. Then, they were 11 years old, living in the Rio slums, dreaming of becoming footballers. As a result of the documentary, Leonardo came to play for Feyenoord and then for many other top teams, and became a millionaire. But now, as he evaluates his life story, a personal tragedy emerges.
