A Game of Futebol
Rio Pequeno is a village surviving from a destructive, drawn-out civil war, one that has left this little-known South American country's federal infrastructure demolished. The villagers, in fearful memory of past atrocities and military reprisals, are playing reluctant hosts to an occupying company of battle-weary soldiers, who are seeking rest and reorganization. Amid a mix of hospitality and resentment, conflicts arise. Tensions arise, primarily between the tired company commander and the stubborn village priest, and lead to an inevitable and highly emotional confrontation over a game of futebol.
