Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka

This semi-autobiographical comedy-drama is the second of a trilogy by director David Neves who takes a look at life on the wild (or at least casual) side in Rio de Janeiro. Bruno (Claudio Marzo) hangs out with a group of free-wheeling dilettantes with two guiding passions in life: doing nothing whenever possible, and sex. A porno filmmaker (Roberto Bonfim) focuses on the latter avocation, while Herminio (Flavio Sao Thiago) focuses on the former. While pursuing both of these passions, Bruno begins an affair with a widow in her 30s and everything seems to be going well -- until he sees her teen-age daughter (nicknamed Fulaninha by his buddies) and it's love at first sight.
