A docudrama about the economic and social disparity between Brazil's upper and lower classes, Chronically Unfeasible was filmed over a five-year period as a fictionalized documentary. Director Sergio Bianchi trains his camera on ineffective union organizers, street children who fight over their toys, police engaging in random acts of brutality, and a black maid who is humiliated by the bourgeois family whom she has known almost all her life. Central to the film are scenes that take place at a restaurant, where a snotty middle-class couple picks at their food, a manager tries to make something of her life, and a young waiter is fired for sleeping with his boss.
