1980's Rio de Janeiro. There is only one King in this city, and he's got the mullet, swagger and fake ID to prove it.
Introducing Carlos Henrique Raposo, known to all as Kaiser. He's got more front than Copacabana beach. He's the most lovable of rogues, with the most common of dreams: to become a professional footballer.
And he isn't about to let trivial details like talent and achievement stand in his way... not when he has so many other ways to get what he wants. In one of the most remarkable football stories ever told, Kaiser graduates from abandoned slumdog to star striker, dressing-room fixer, superstar party host and inexhaustible lover.
He is a man who had a 26 year professional career as a footballer, without ever kicking a ball. This remarkable feature documentary explores the wild world of Kaiser, and the biggest sporting con of all-time. Featuring contributions from: Zico, Carlos Alberto, Bebeto, Ricardo Rocha and Renato Gaucho.
Get ready to meet Kaiser.
