The most surprising player of soccer of all the times!
Manoel dos Santos, Garrincha (1933 - 1983), was one of the best players of soccer of all the times. Player of Botafogo from Rio de Janeiro and of the Brazilian selection, he surprised for his incredible appearance: his legs were crooked (both) and even so, he was an exceptional player.
One of the responsible principal for the conquest of two world championships of soccer to Brazil (1958 and 1962), this film was accomplished while his career was in the peak.
In this film we can know the small city where he was born, the family, his relationship with the team companions and with the fans and, mainly, a lot of scenes of his impressive technique, what does a fair homage of this film to one of the largest Brazilian idols of all the times.
