Synopsis

Under pressure from a back pain and being constantly short of money, Tiago (played by Okado do Canal) experiences an encounter that will reshape everything he knew about his own father, instilling an imminent crisis in his way of being. Set amid the outskirts of Olinda and the Recife middle class, the film contrasts both worlds without ignoring or overlooking the complexity of human relationships. In this universe where rap beats and community life thrive, we glimpse through the cracks of a disintegrating family model the construction of another masculinity. *(C.M)
