Thiago ‘Mosquito’ Rodrigues da Silva

15 years, CR Vasco da Gama

During the first filming period in 2011, Thiago Mosquito mounted the football stage as top scorer with 14 goals in 7 matches for Brazil at the South American U-15 Championship. Even though these results foresee a bright future for the young hopeful, Mosquito’s social background has the potential to burst his dreams. Raised in one of Brazil’s poorest and most dangerous favelas, the infamous Ciudade de Deus (known from the movie “City of God”), Mosquito and his family are confronted with crime and misery every day. His biological father went to prison for violence and major crimes in the drug trade. Noting that Mosquito has no other father figure, his mother’s new boyfriend tries to take advantage of his position by pushing the young football talent to make as much money for him and the family as possible. The next months play a decisive role in his future, since rumour has it that a Spanish premier league club wants to sign him.
