Home Team/ Mi Mundial
Based on the bestselling novel by Uruguayan fútbol player Daniel Baldi, Mi Mundial offers a candid and touching look at how passion can lead one astray.
Tito may be a prodigy on the soccer pitch, but his father does his best to show him there is more to life than games.
His father influence topples, however, once an agent pegs Tito as a major talent and convinces the family to uproot from their rural Nogales home and relocate to Montevideo.
Will Tito fulfill his dream? Or will his focus on fútbol ultimately sabotage his goals?
Home Team is a cautionary tale that understands both the thrill of the game and the importance of seeing life’s big picture.
