In the nineteen seventies, right after Brazil became three times world champion, the best shoes for kids to play soccer in were Kichute, they were simple soccer tennis shoes made with cleats on the sole. Every kid in the village who wants to be part of the boys club had to wear
them and that throws Beto into a right of passage test. He has to prove he's ready to face his own problems with bully attacks at his school, his soccer game rematches against kids from other villages, and most important, he has to deal with his father's demands for him to go to work after school instead of playing soccer.
