A Esperança Está Onde Menos se Espera

(Portugal, 2009, 123 minutes)

A well-off teenager is forced to move to a problem high school after his soccer coach father is fired for being honest and is unable to find a new job. Well-done but derivative melodrama whose director is clearly interested in exploring areas the soap-opera-level script doesn't want to go.
