Real political events captured on film are mixed in with this fictional story about David (Antonio Fagundes), a television reporter who strays so close to his subjects on the streets of Sao Paulo that his own world seems to merge with theirs. Soon his investigation into murders involving prostitutes is overshadowed by his growing alienation from the political scene, from his family, and from his job. Yet the crimes he investigates do not seem to be completely disconnected from his changing political views - creating a kind of confusion that is never totally resolved in this interesting social, political, and psychological drama from director João Batista de Andrade.
