Brazil's leading composer and singer ventures into film making, revealing himself with family and friends, in thirty segments arranged in three chapters - literature, music, and pictorial art. From the cacophony of a large party, dialogs start forming and will encompass in a variety of settings, themes that go from German philosophy to avant garde theatre, classic poetry and current politics, family love and homosexuality.
