Comedy, Fantasy, Epic


An outlandish, ingenuous and funny comedy on the world of football and gigantic long-haired dogs that portrays the nation in dire need of heroes.



Diamantino, the world’s premiere soccer star (played by Carloto Cotta), loses his special touch and ends his career in disgrace. Searching for a new purpose, the international icon sets out on a delirious odyssey where he confronts neo-fascism, the refugee crisis, genetic modification, abuse at the hands of his evil twin sisters, and a deranged hunt for the source of genius..
