This densely-packed and odd docudrama refers back to Orson Welles' 1942 visit to Brazil to make a movie called "It's All True." Using newsreel footage from that period, re-enactments of his visit, and excerpts from his movies and radio shows, director Rogerio Sganzerla seems to imply that politics intervened in Welles' project, cutting it short. At the same time, Welles is not always painted in a complementary light, whether intentionally or not. Before the final curtain comes down, it is revealed that Paramount Studios found several hundred reels belonging to Welles' Brazilian stay.
