On January 1, 2003, two families get together for a barbecue on a run-down estate in rural Brazil. It's a Sunday like any other, except for the teenagers' raging hormones, a sudden downpour, a small box full of cocaine, and a couple of family secrets that come to light. At the same time, Brazil is celebrating the inauguration of President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva. What gradually emerges is an ironic portrait of Brazil's upper class at this historic point in time.
