Nossa Chape tracks the rebuilding of the Chapecoense football club in Brazil after an airplane crash in 2016 left all but three of the players dead. The question of moving on or honoring the dead weighs heavily on the survivors, the new team, the families, and the city as the documentary focuses on how grief is both an individual and a collective process.
