New Year’s Eve, 1983. Suzano has returned from his studies in Paris to spend time with his sister and nephew. Rose, a trans performer, prepares for her latest show at a party. And Humberto, recently arrived in the city, documents it all on shaky camcorder. The future looks bright for them all. But eight months later, all three friends find themselves early victims of the AIDS epidemic. While they don’t understand the disease they have, they are united in their diagnosis and the collective desire to survive through their limited means. Unflinching at times, but also joyful and poetic, Rodrigo de Oliveira’s film gives testimony to fictional victims and reminds us of the countless real people whose stories have been lost.
