Film Story

It’s summer. An Argentine family travels to Brazil. Inside the car are Lucrecia and Pedro (psychologists) and their teenage son and daughter, Julián and Flor. Lucrecia and Pedro have been “technically separated” (that’s how they describe their relationship) for a few months, after decades of being married.

Marco, the Brazilian man who rents the family a house for the summer, encourages enjoying the present and being conscious of how short life is. Together with Larissa -his ex-girlfriend- and César -Marco’s son-, they befriend the Argentine family

Lucrecia is attracted to Marco. Pedro discovers the wonders of Larissa.

At the beach, between waves, karaoke bars, and trips on the water, intertwined romances bloom. The kids take advantage of the situation to live their own experiences and everything becomes a bit more tangled.

While an infinite samba awakes the tourists from a deep slumber, each person gradually separates themselves from the group in order to explore a more free and unexpected version of themselves.
