A daringly unconventional road movie, in which nothing is quite what it seems.

Based on a novel by João Gilberto Noll, this compelling and utterly original adventure follows a handsome drifter as he departs his everyday life as a TV soap actor and embarks upon an impulsive journey that takes him through extremes of experience both comic and macabre. As lush and as inexplicable as a David Lynch dreamscape, this marks a striking third outing for its director Suzanne Amaral.
