Film Synopsis: Sebastião’s two-decade quest is to use badminton, a sport he never played, to transform the kids in a humble favela in Rio de Janeiro.  Using love, sweat and the innovative training technique of samba dancing to teach badminton, Sebastião imagined and created a community of champions, family and dreams.  The competitive yet tender relationships of young players and the qualifying of players for the 2016 Olympic Games reveal that even the most unlikely of dreams can become reality.
