When your uncle arrives your home and just says: "I killed a guy!"
Duca (Darlan Cunha) is a smart boy which lives with his parents. His life is about to change when his uncle (Lázaro Ramos), suddenly, arrives his parents' home and says: "I killed a guy!". The man says that he killed his girlfriend's former husband as self-defence. Smart as he is, the boy will try to help his uncle to not be arrested by the police, but at the same time, he finds out some mistakes in his uncle's story, and that probably things didn't happen just as his uncle told. He tells about this story to his friends, Isa (a girl for whom he has a crush), and kid (the guy for whom Isa has a crush!), and decides to start his own investigation
This movie is very good because it mixes an entertaining teenage adventure's story with a description wonderfully done at parts of some issues of nowadays society (in this particular case, the Brazilian society). Besides, it has an excellent sense of humour, which is used as a "weapon" to criticize several points of that society.
Almost all actors are known from the Brazilian TV series/shows. I just didn't know the girl who plays Isa's role (Sophia Reis), but all of them did an excellent job, that's for sure! That's one more excellent film from Brazil!
