    An emotional portrait of intergenerational love, life and loss among a marginalized class of Brazilians.

    Christopher Vourlias, Variety

    Looking at marginalization through several lenses — including age, sexuality, gender, violence and crime — this is a thematically ambitious but narratively very intimate and compassionate story of human relationships.

    Boyd van Hoeij, The Hollywood Reporter
