    • Synopsis
    • São Paulo, Brazil. Four young brothers and their pregnant mother try to rewrite their story and redefine their future against the backdrop of the harshest city of Latin America.
      In this urban Road-movie, the search for a missing father blends with the dreams of a football career, the desire to be recognized, and a yearning to cross the boundaries of race and class.
      Interwoven with their plight lies the city of São Paulo, crisscrossed by speeding messengers on motorcycles, drumming from the bleachers of soccer-stadiums, the singing of hymns in the ever growing pentecostal churches and the belt of poverty around the carpet of high rises. The film is the reflection of a country that, like the four brothers in the film, is desperately searching for a way out...
      Now in post production, Linha de Passe is an urgent, poetic new film by Walter Salles (director of CENTRAL STATION and THE MOTORCYCLE DIARIES) and his co-director of FOREIGN LAND, Daniela Thomas, representing for Salles a long-awaited return to Brazilian cinema.
