All Over Brazil

Those of a certain age, persuasion and nationality will scream with a knowing laughter and, then, cry over the pain of those hard years.
Beautifully realised, perfectly played - a stunning little short.
ALL OVER BRAZIL from David Ward on Vimeo.
It's Summer 1974 and all looks rosy, with the Scotland World Cup team, under Billy Bremner's captaincy, in the Finals. After being all over Brazil in their first match, Scotland now has to beat Yugoslavia to get into the knock-out rounds. But in suburban Glasgow, 13 year old Stephen, is keener on seeing his favorite glam rock band in concert than following the progress of Scotland's World Cup football squad. Meanwhile his football fanatic father Charley isn't about to let "a bunch of nancy boys" turn his son's head away from sporting glory. Stephen's hopes of following his Glam Rock idols appears to be dashed after his father catches him in his older sister Donna's gold platform boots and full glam make-up. Charley meanwhile is struggling to come to terms with the loss of his wife (and mother to his two teenage children) and when Stephen tells him he thinks his mother would have let him go to the concert, Charley explodes.
