Synopsis: Francisco, the main character, is a creature inspired by so many people Antônio has met during his professional life. An advertising executive and aspiring writer who leaves Southern Brazil s provincial city of Porto Alegre, Francisco goes to the commercial capital of São Paulo looking for success, fame, money, and the bohemian life. When Francisco s girlfriend introduces him to a famous author, Francisco ends up sharing an apartment with him and plunges into an underground world, which revolves around big parties and an abundance of sex. But Francisco remains restless, always looking for a satisfaction that doesn t exist. He starts traveling around the world in search of excitement until he returns to São Paulo, determined to settle down and lead a normal life. But it all goes horribly wrong and instead of sorting himself out, he gets more involved in the world of sex, drugs and booze. It all might turn out very badly, but there are moments of fine and delightful humor from Antônio Costa Neto, who is considered one of the best writers in this genre in Brazil today.
