Naiana (played by Rosalina Tamiza) abandons Canindé and Diego’s friendship (played by Maricota) to teach at a public school in Búzios, where a mysterious murder takes place. Following from this event, a group of young vampires, travelling between the northeast and southeast of the country, turn their own monstrosity into positivity and reclaim death as eternal life. The combination of the graphic violence of horror with experimentalism and social commentary renders this production (collective and low budget, awarded in Tiradentes) a mutant and heterodox allegory of contemporary Brazil.
