Its 2014, and Roberto (Asaf Goldstein), a divorced 40-year-old, finds himself on a spontaneous trip from Israel to Brazil for the World Cup with his father and son. His impetuous Brazilian father, a passionate soccer fan, has brought them to cheer on his beloved home team, but Robertos spoiled 12-year-old son, Itay (Rom Barnea) has no interest in soccer and would rather be anywhere else. What could go wrong? Back to Maracanã is a heartfelt and humorous road trip film featuring three generations of men trying to understand one another and come to terms with their lives that arent going quite as theyd hoped.
