In 1970, near the World Cup, Daniel Stern and his wife Miriam leave Belo Horizonte in a hurry with their ten year old son Mauro. While traveling to São Paulo, the couple explained to Mauro that they will take a vacation and will leave Mauro with his grandfather Mótel. Daniel promises to return before the first game of the Brazilian National Soccer Team in the Cup. The boy is left in Bom Retiro, a Jewish and Italian neighborhood, and waits for Mótel in front of his apartment. When the next door neighbor Shlomo arrives, he tells the boy that Mótel had a heart attack and died. Alone and without knowing where his parents are, the boy is lodged by Shlomo and the Jewish community.
