Nelson Sargento counts facts of life of an old musician of Rio de Janeiro, an alive legend of the hill of the Mangueira, headquarters of the most traditional school of samba of Brazil. Author of famous and very popular sambas, Nelson Sargento is a great fighter that makes an effort in maintaining the alive samba, once that this typical musical rhythm of Brazil is dying little by little, victim of the cultural dominance originating from of other countries and even due to the increase of the popular preference for other rhythms. The film presents beautiful images of the hill of the Mangueira, beautiful in your poverty. Glimpses some people that met Nelson Sargento along your life and it also tries to show the cheerful and musical side of the people of the city of Rio de Janeiro, today so suffered for the violence. Finally, a short wonderful, fair homage to one of the great Brazilian popular musicians.
