Synopsis

Ãjãí is a fun game where only the players' heads can touch the ball. This practice, shared by a few indigenous people in the world, is present among the Myky and Manoki populations of Mato Grosso state, Brazil, who speak a language of an isolated linguistic family. Youngsters of the Myky people decide to film and edit their game for the first time, to publicize it outside the villages. But to organize this great party, its chiefs will find some challenges ahead.
