Plot & Details

This highly stylized Brazilian drama contains a nonlinear storyline that effectively erases the thin line between reality and illusion as it follows the night lives of people living on the teeming streets of Sao Paulo. The story begins with a drag queen and the man he just murdered. The scene expands and reveals that he is an actor rehearsing a play. Next a man is shot while driving his convertible. This too is an illusion and as a woman screams it is seen that she is an actress in a movie. The theater director and the actress meet. Soon they get involved with a strange series of characters. All of the stories are framed by visual explorations of film, theater, TV and performance art that comment upon the seamier sides of the town's nightlife.
