Ao iniciar o esgotamento político do golpe militar no Brasil (1978), acompanhamos o romance entre um soldado de 18 anos e um agitador cultural, dono de um cabaré anarquista. Confrontos e reflexões de uma geração analisados a partir da periferia. A exceção pautando a visão da regra.

Ganhadora de 5 prêmios no Festival do Rio, entre eles o Prêmio Especial do Júri, da Crítica e do Público e os troféus de melhor ator (Jesuíta Barbosa), melhor ator coadjuvante (Rodrigo García)

Brazil, 1978. The military dictatorship that resulted from a coup in 1964 begins to stumble. In a cabaret-like theater located on the periphery between two cities in the northeast of Brazil a group of artists challenges power and conventional morality with theater plays and public interferences. Led by Clécio Wanderley, the troupe Chão de Estrelas, strongly supported by it’s homosexual audience, along with intellectuals and other artists, practices political resistance through anarchy and mockery.


Wanderley’s life changes when he meets Fininha, née Arlindo Araújo, an 18 yearold boy from the country fulfilling his military service in the big city. This encounter represents a bold metamorphosis for both of their universes, a rendezvous that sticks as permanently as a tattoo, a sign carried forever in one’s soul.

A true representative of the powerful cinema made in Pernambuco, Winner of five awards at Rio Film Festival, including the Special Jury Prize, the Critics Award and the Audience Award as well as trophies for best actor (Jesuit Barbosa), best supporting actor (Rodrigo Garcia)
