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, one indigenous, one African and one European descendant, the documentary We must be dreaming explores what the World Cup and the Olympic Games have brought to the lives of the people of Rio de Janeiro and to what degree the biggest sport events of the planet have brought the dreams and opportunities they promise.
