Director Alberto Graca has tried to re-create the environment in Brazil upon the return to civilian, party politics after more than 10 years of military rule. The opposition to military rule now spends its time in power struggles and temporary alliances as factions and parties vie for a place at the top of the ladder. None of the in-fighting among the maze of protagonists can be accomplished without extensive discussions -- a classic Latino approach that seems to be as much a part of the culture as language itself. Some viewers without enough background may find the multiple characters and political complexities a little hard to follow.
