Description

In this tender first feature, photography provides a gateway to freedom. Morbidly obese Frederico leads a lonely life. His only human connection comes through visits from his overbearing sister and her long-suffering husband. Inspired after seeing their vacation photos, he ventures out to a photography studio where he befriends spiky-haired punk rock and comic book enthusiast Paulo. Thanks to Paulo, he discovers a newfound love for photography, which in turn brings him closer to his brother-in-law Ramón. A lyrical gem with touches of magic realism.
