Sagrada Família (Holy Family)

Synopsis

Holy Family is dark humor comedy that tells the story of a family of 5 brothers, a single mother and a grandmother who live tight on a small apartment in Benfica. The mother (Bela), permanently unemployed, has the fantasy to enrich herself. Liliana, 19, is an addict and struggles in school. Zé, 21, works at the grocery store. Artur, 11, speaks little but is still the quietly responsible figure of this family, taking care of his younger twin brothers, Gil and Ricardo. Finally, Dona Laura, is an eccentric old lady obsessed with football. Everything is complicated on the day that the emblematic Sardoal FC mascot escapes and the club is at risk of losing the championship.
