Based on former Uruguayan soccer player Daniel Baldi’s best-selling coming-of-age novel, Carlos Morelli’s feature debut tells the story of Tony, a 13-year-old soccer prodigy from the countryside who gets the chance of a lifetime: to play semi-professionally in Montevideo. He not only leaves school behind but also turns his back on family, friends and even a girlfriend until an accident days prior to signing a contract to play in Brazil forces him to face his toughest challenge so far. “Home Team” offers a candid and touching look at how passion can lead one astray.

Basado en la exitosa novela iniciática del ex futbolista uruguayo Daniel Baldi, “Mi mundial” cuenta la historia de Tony, de 13 años; niño prodigio del fútbol a quien le ofrecen la oportunidad de jugar en un equipo semi-profesional en Montevideo. El éxito se le sube a la cabeza y no solo deja la escuela sino que le da la espalda a su familia, amigos e incluso a su novia; un accidente días antes de firmar un contrato para jugar en Brasil lo hará recapacitar. “Mi mundial” ofrece una mirada sincera y conmovedora sobre cómo la pasión puede llevar a uno por mal camino.

Presented by The International Latino Cultural Center of Chicago in collaboration with the Chicago Park District
