SYNOPSIS

Through a series of casual encounters, a young man gets the feel of a new city
New to Sao Paulo, Elias divides his days between working in a cloth factory and fleeting encounters with other men. As the end of the year approaches, work intensifies, and he finds himself increasingly trapped within the factory. With limited free time, he attempts to etch his place in new social circles and to assert the possibility of new relationships.
