FATHER BY CHANCE - SEASONS I & II
Long-running series

  • SYNOPSIS

    Miguel is 40 years old and is on the top of his career, being the successful and wealthy person he once dreamt to be. Miguel is a professional bachelor whose affairs are mainly one night stands. His way of life comes from a trauma rather than a choice. Miguel had never met his parents, as he had grown up in a foster home. All of a sudden Miguel’s world will change. He gets a phone call remembering him of something he tried hard to forget and which he had hidden from all his acquaintances. His best friend at foster home had just died in a car crash, together with his wife, leaving a will stating that, in case anything happens to them, his children’s custody - Simão (12), Jaime (8), and Beatriz (6 years old) - should be given to his old childhood friends, so that the kids would not grow up without a family, like they had.

    At first, Miguel will try to escape from his responsibilities, but after meeting the children and spending an incredible weekend with them, he understands that he has no choice but to take the kids home. What Miguel couldn’t imagine was how much his life would change...
