About the film:

In this award winning LGBTQ coming of age from Brazil, Young Elias tries to balance his daily life between working in a garment factory and casual encounters with men. With the arrival of summer, Elias has been dreaming of the sea often, and his desire to turn off a bit intensifies. In the factory where he works, however, his responsibilities grow as the holiday season approaches. After another night working of overtime, Elias and his co-workers decide to go out together. As he tries to discern where his future might lead him, Elias learns to take pleasure in the small things in life.
