A film by António Pinhão Botelho.
RUTH is a film about the society of metropolitan Portugal and its African colonies at the beginning of the 1960’s. And it’s also the story of young Eusébio, a gifted footballer destined to great achievements, coveted by rival clubs.
Blackmail, kidnapping attempts, ministers involved, press hysteria and huge money offers make the story of this football transfer into a saga evolving between the two continents.
Produced by Leopardo Filmes, distribution by NOS Audiovisuais.
