| Individual human identity disruption
The title "O Homem que Virou Suco" is due to the continuous crushing, squeezing people that the big city does, leading to the disappearance of what defines the human: their ability to think, to become a single individual and to express themselves. In other words, men are objectified and homogenized. Deraldo is one of the millions of northeastern migrants, but he is contradictory and turbulent. He leads to the question of what is identity and what is to be a citizen. He also represents the search for better living conditions, based on the premise that individuals living under the same laws should have the same rights. Deraldo doesn't want to be turned into juice, so he struggles against oppression suffered from the choice of work (artistic professions were not considered worthy by those suffering the same intolerance he) and even violence in the city that does not distinguish his singularity and marginalizes him. Moreover, he always carries the feeling to defend the culture of his homeland and that it is more important than the imposed working conditions.
