This provocative film, set in Brazil’s rural Southwest, follows the daily life of Sandro, a middle-aged bear who is consumed by his sexual fantasies.

Sandro’s daily routine reflects the monotony surrounding him, from morning swims, to work at the fertilizer factory, to trips to the grocery store. One activity bordering on routine as well is his sexual encounters with co-worker Ricardo, be it in a car, in the woods, or in a silo. Sandro’s world (and routine) is turned upside down, however, when he meets Maicon, a man who dresses in motorcycle leathers and resembles a Tom of Finland drawing come to life. Soon, Sandro’s sexual dreams become increasingly elaborate and explicit, and the lines between reality and fantasy begin to blur.

Featuring powerful cinematography and lighting, Daniel Nolasco’s feature debut provides an erotically charged look at the gaps between our sexual desires and our day-to-day lives.
