From international auteur Bruno Barreto comes this hilarious retelling of Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet." Ophthalmologist Romeo and his family are passionately obsessed fans of the Corinthians football team. While across town, the lovely Juliet's father is an equally rabid fan -- and fan club president --- of Palmeiras, the Corinthians' century-old arch rivals. Romeo and Juliet meet and fall in love. Romeo, desperate to get in good graces with his future father-in-law, decides to fake a love for Palmeiras:. This ruse is soon found out by Juliet (the only person who doesn't care), Their secret is discovered and the two lovers try to save their relationship as tempers flair, and revenge is sought in a series of frantic and hilarious twists.
