Synopsis

The universe of a public school in the northeastern state of Ceará is explored in its potential for social revolution. When the young Saulo Chuvisco (played by Lucas Limeira) becomes the target of a racist insult that goes unpunished, and refuses to leave the school grounds in protest, the consequences of his unruly act affect the entire community. Merging an engaging narrative with a profound questioning on the power of images, the film operates a fierce critique of racial and class discrimination in Brazil, waging on a collective awareness-raising to spark direct popular action.
