The protagonist and hero of the film lives through the more radical moments in Brazil’s history.Alive for more than 600 years, he himself narrates the events taking place in four different periods and, in each one of them, he fights from the side of the weakers and reencounters his true love.His love story, that surmounts life and death, crosses the story of Brazil itself and goes back to tribal wars in pre-colonial Brazil, up to the lack of water in Rio de Janeiro in a not too distant future.
