Exploring issues of class privilege among Rio's decadent elite, the film depicts a teenage boy's struggle to escape his overprotective parents as they covertly spiral into bankruptcy.
"It's an extremely personal film, since it portrays the world in which I grew up and from which I tried to escape. My main intention was to tell a great story, focusing on characters and their relationships, set in a very specific and authentic universe. I worked with non-professional teenage actors alongside soap opera stars, whose image connects with the characters in the film."
