Charming Brazilian working class family fight to keep their dreams alive in the months after Bolsonaro was elected president in a warmly colorful tale.

The family Martin is a group of optimistic and loving dreamers. Papa Wellington takes care of the houses of the rich and has his sights set on a football career for the youngest son Deivinho – who himself whittles plans for colonizing Mars. The big sister Eunice has a new, daring love, but a hard time coming out. Mamma Tércia has an extra job, but focuses on the household. When she one day is exposed to a disconcerting “prank” at the same time as things get increasingly tough for a black family in a country with a far-right government, life begins to crumble. With tenderness, humour, a bit of magical realism, and – not least – fabulously present actors, Gabriel Martins succeeds at competently telling us about an, at base, quite depressing thing in an uplifting and enormously charming way.
