Cast: Carloto Cotta, Cleo Tavares, Anabela Moreira A hunky, idiot savant soccer star with a heart of gold, Diamantino’s gilded life comes to a screeching halt when he flubs a crucial penalty kick. The former star’s self-imposed penance is to solve the refugee crisis, but he instead becomes the target of a network of lesbian spies, evil twins, and mad scientists, all swirling around a nefarious campaign to exit the EU and “Make Portugal Great Again.”.
