Dom Barbudo, a pioneer in the São Paulo gay and BDSM community and elected first Mister Leather Brasil in 2017, prepares to pass on the mantle to one of the four contestants in the second edition of the contest. The dispute is tight, and with the title comes the responsibilities of promoting leather culture and representing the country in the annual international competition, in Chicago. Mixing fabulous elements with more traditional documentary procedures, the feature film follows the backstage of the event and the São Paulo leather scene, lightheartedly exploring the references of this aesthetic and its transformations in contemporary times.
