A feature length documentary, produced by Fernando Meirelles (director of City of God), follows a selection of young footballers, both male and female, as they strut their stuff on congested streets, abandoned building sites, the beach and even the banks of the Amazon. The ball skills on display here are so astonishing they have to be seen to be believed, yet Brazilians simply call it ginga, which means "playful football".
