About the Story
Road 2 Rio tells the heart-warming story of Rico, a young Brazilian boy who embarks on a magnificent journey across Brazil with his two best friends; Felipe, a samba-loving Toco Toucan and Pedro, a plump football with a peculiar sense of humour.
Rico’s aim is to become a better footballer in time for Brazil’s national football tournament held at the famous Maracanã Stadium in Rio de Janeiro. Flown across the country by Felipe, the determined young Boy visits the hometowns of his football idols, where he discovers how to play the Brazilian Way.
As Rico prepares for the big day, he goes head-to-head with a football-hating and vengeful bee called Zeze. Although small in nature, Zeze plots a grand and cunning plan to destroy Rico’s dream of becoming a football superstar.
