Rejane Faria, Carlos Francisco, Camilla Damião,
This charming and humorous film centers on the Martin family, a dynamic unit that meets the shifting politics of modern-day Brazil with grit and determination. Featuring four vibrant characters—the matriarch Tércia, who struggles to move past a shocking experience; her husband, Wellington, a man of appetites and futebol superfan who spends his days caring for the middle class with indefatigable loyalty; their bookish son, Deivinho, who obligingly absorbs his father’s athletic ambitions while harboring a secret desire to colonize Mars; and Eunice, a young woman discovering her sexual identity—this tender film is a delightful portrait of a bombastic clan who dares to dream. Tensions flare and disaster looms, but this ensemble of strivers finds strength in one another.
