In a modern epic of revolutionary proportions, this of-the-moment drama shows a family in Brazil at the announcement of Bolsonaro's appointment as President. Young dyke Eunice, her little brother Deivinho, mother Tércia, and father Wellington all experience alienation from the state and the status quo in a film that dreams of another world out there. The lives of this family weave an elegant tapestry that intertwines discussions of class, addiction, strong family ties, big dreams, mental health, and queer identity in context.

This is hugely ambitious filmmaking that draws the lines of solidarity in society against anti-Black, anti-LGBTQ, anti-environment powers, and against human powerlessness.
