Synopsis

In strict isolation during the first year of the pandemic, Francisco (played by the screenwriter and director Fábio Leal) has the reputation of “inspecting other people’s quarantine”. Following the break-up of a long-distance relationship, fear, boredom, and loneliness are high, but horniness is stronger. Chico decides to devise a plan to have sex in compliance with all health protocols. In this queer chronicle of pandemic life, irony and desire arouse catharsis on and off screen. (C. M.)
