KISSING THE CUP: The Carlos Alberto Story is the remarkable journey of one family–and one nation.

KISSING THE CUP is an intimate account of Brazil’s recently deceased 1970 World Cup winning captain Carlos Alberto Torres, his son and his grandson. The film explores how their lives reflect Brazilian society over the last 50 years and project into Brazil’s future. From one man’s life transformed by futebol success to a son playing in the shadow of a legend, then onto the next generation: raised in Japan, educated in England, and building a career on the business of marketing football as an entrepreneur.
