Brief synopsis of the project: 

A daily, family, social, sexual and emotional drama with a plot centered on the figure of Serginho, a boy of 14. The audience follows day after day this young boy, who is «no more child not yet man», in its recently acquired new role as man of the house, in his work on the market, in his friendship with Mudinho and Silvinha and in his confused relationship with the professor. The film is a juxtaposition of moments in the life of a child in transition.

Director's biography: 

With a narrative form very close to documentary, he has increasingly sought in his movies stories depicting the inner conflicts and family conflicts. His universe is a plausible and popular world in which he captures the intensity of human relationships. He became well-known internationally through his fiction debut A Casa de Alice, selected at Films in Progress.
