In the summer of 2014, Brazil hosted the FIFA World Cup. But as the sport's most glittering spectacle was played, another more humble tournament was already staged in the Cidade Maravilhosa - the second-ever Street Child World Cup. With over 100 million children living on the streets in the world, they are especially vulnerable to exploitation and abuse of their civil & economic rights. This film showcases the life-changing experience for a group of girls from the favelas in Rio de Janeiro, the Favela Street Girls, who are chosen to represent Brazil during the Street Child World Cup 2014.
