Synopsis

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.
