A trip to a strange familiar place.
This ever surprising documentary about the residents of a huge building located at Copacabana Beach, Rio de Janeiro, touches our very souls with the bitter-sweet stories of people (almost) like us. From the old couple always quarrelling about each other's idiosyncrasies to the young woman which sells her body but doesn't loose the girlish sparkles of her eyes, Coutinho takes us by hand on a trip over a very familiar, still astonishingly strange, place. Prepare yourself to laughs and cries.
