The Year My Parents Went on Vacation/O Ano Em Que Mes Pais Saíram de Férias (2006)

This is a past event.

The second film in the Palomitas's Coming of Age Film Series.

The year is 1970, and Mauro (Michel Joelsas) is taken to live with his grandfather while his mother and father flee the politically repressive Brazilian regime. As the nation prepares to watch their team compete in the soccer World Cup, Mauro anticipates the return of his parents. When his grandfather dies suddenly, he is set adrift and befriends the characters who live in the surrounding Jewish neighborhood, all the while anxiously awaiting news of his parents' fate.
