The antagonism portrayed in this explosive black comedy makes a dysfunctional family seem like the Brady bunch. Director Ana Carolina has her leads play it straight, allowing the absurdity of their situations to speak for itself. Felicidade (Norma Benguel) has just slashed her husband with a razor blade in a violent argument, and she and her offensive daughter (Cristina Pereira) run away together. They are caught by Orlande (Otavio Augusto) who was sent out after them by the injured husband. Instead of bringing them back, Orlande takes off with them and a series of misadventures results. Long periods of dialogue are well-written and maintain interest in this maladjusted trio.
