In a contemporary context marked by polarization, Alice Riff explores the challenge of the “between”. She turns her attention to people who fight against hegemonic thoughts in historically conservative institutions: Valéria, founder of the evangelical group for gender equality, and Alexandre, a police officer who is critical of the same organization. By materializing some of the dilemmas that afflict contemporary Brazil, the documentary puts itself in a position of risk by engaging in relationships and negotiations between different perspectives of the world and film aspirations, between those who propose the project and those who are willing to partake in it.
