What roads did the 2014 FIFA World Cup and the 2016 Rio Olympic Games pave for Brazil? Along three years of navigating through the daily lives of three Brazilians living in Rio de Janeiro, one indigenous descendant, one African descendant and one European descendant, the documentary We Must Be Dreaming explores on a personal level what the World Cup and the Olympic Games have actually meant for the lives of the people of Rio de Janeiro and tο what degree the two biggest sport events of the planet have brought the dreams and opportunities that they promised.
