In Brazil, Football is more than sport. More than making money. In Brazil, Football is a passion. And it’s also a field for social commitment. The cornerstone for this has been laid more than 40 years ago from exceptional footballer Sócrates with his „Democracia Corinthiana“.During the World Cup 2014, Daniel Cohn-Bendit travelled through the country with the aim to find out, how much of Sócrates’ spirit is still noticeable in the land of football. The film is a poetic essay about football, life, Brazil and democracy. Not least it is a homage to Sócrates, who actually wanted to join this trip, but died shortly before the shooting started.
