Through interviews with Ruth de Souza, Lea Garcia and other political and theater partners, the film intertwines moments of pure acting, using the stage interaction and the language of drama to talk about reality. Abdias do Nascimento mixes memories, dreams, and feelings in order to shape a complex and real profile of an unforgettable Brazilian man.
