An erotic tale of identity and sexuality set in modern day Brazil. Elias (Kelner Macêdo) works as an assistant designer in a clothing factory. As the distance between his professional and personal life closes, Elias explores his desires, invigorated by the freedom offered through his companions. Against the warnings of his superiors, Elias takes to socialising into the night with his co-workers. This feature debut by director Marcelo Caetano captures the beauty and delicate excitement of Elias' sexual awakening, as seen through the intense colour and vibrancy of São Paulo.

- Body Electric review by KW
Intersting film about Elias, a young 23 year old with talent as a designer at a clothing manufacturer, but who starts to let the distance between his private and professional life close to the point where it starts to raise issues! Watchable film, but at times the story line seemed to be being stretched to fill out the film to cinematic length.
