Synopsis

A tender, raw and surprising story of a small family of Brazilian cousins who move to London to make a living and broaden their horizons, the film stars Selton Mello as Jean Charles de Menezes, with Vanessa Giacomo playing his wide-eyed country-girl cousin Vivian.

Eva Birthistle stars as the woman Jean falls in love with. Dreams, hardship, joie-de-vivre and tragedy are at the heart of Brazuca, which is set against the back-drop of the 2005 London bombings.
