Resilience is the capacity of a person to overcome traumatic situations. For Rafinha Alcantara, the last one was the last 25th of November of 2018 in the Wanda Metropolitano, when in the second half of the Atletico de Madrid vs FC Barcelona he was injured from his left ACL. 6 months was the time expected for him to be able to play again.

The idea was born from the player himself. Thanks to the more than 8 million followers on his social media, he decided to put himself in front of a camera to explain the complete process. Many people asked him about how to overcome something like that. As Rafinha said, there wasn’t a better way to answer them than 45 minutes of a documentary.

How’s the life of a football player when he has a serious injury? How does he train? How does he manage the mentality to overcome it? Is the process the same as a person who’s not a professional athlete?

Resilience, one of Rafinha’s favorite words, shows us the process from the day of the surgery in the surgery room until the day he gets the medical clearance after 6 months. From inside and with the player always as the main narrator, the documentary shows how he confronts it, his fears, the persons that help him during the process, his day a day team, helping him in everything they can, opinions from teammates such as Arthur Melo, Philippe Coutinho, Sergi Roberto, Ter Stegen and, in the end, the life of a top player injured  who watches how everything continues naturally except his own routine.

You can find Resilience in Amazon Prime Video from 1st of March worldwide and it is going to be available until 1st of March of 2022. The documentary is able in Spanish (VO) and subtitled in Italian, English and Brazilian Portuguese.
