Comedy in which six friends, talentless and unfit, form a seven-a-side football team. They call themselves Brazil and plan to play soccer until they win. At the core of the group is cab driver Antonio (Ernesto Alterio), an ex-con who has developed a passion for Freudian analysis through his prison therapy sessions. When his sister dumps his best pal Jorge (Alberto San Juan), a white-collar nonentity with a spastic colon, he decides what better way to cheer him up than by getting together the old team and winning the league. Jorge in turn is completely oblivious to his best friend's motives; he believes that Brazil must keep on playing in order to help keep Antonio on the straight and narrow.
