Heleno de Freitas was the prince of Rio de Janeiro’s golden era, in the '40, when the city lived its glory days full of glamour and promise of a better future. Handsome, charming and good-natured, the man was an explosive genius passionate about soccer fields. Heleno was certain he was to become Brazil’s greatest player ever. But the war, disease and the many mishaps in his life took him off that path, in a journey full of glory and tragedy.
