Synopsis

Born inside a car, Uno has had a very special relationship with them from an early age. From the renovation of an old family vehicle, Uno and his uncle, the auto mechanic Zé Macaco, will set forward a movement no one can predict how and where it will end. By merging elements from assorted film genres, treading between wild fantasy and grounded in a very specific reality, Renata Pinheiro devises a unique film within the contemporary landscape of Brazilian cinema, urgent and timeless in equal measure. Free and restless cinema, as it should be in absurd times. *(E.V)
