On December 13th, 1968, the Brazilian military dictatorship passed Institutional Act Number Five (AI-5), and it marked the beginning of the regime's most repressive and violent phase. Two weeks later, singer-songwriter, Caetano Veloso, was arrested. He was taken from his São Paulo home to Rio de Janeiro, where he was shut in solitary confinement for one week and ultimately imprisoned for 54 days. It was the most difficult experience of his life. Fifty years later, the documentary, "Narcissus Off Duty," paints an intimate portrait of Caetano's incarceration as he recalls painful memories and performs songs that marked his imprisonment. He also presents new information about why he was detained, exposing the regime's view of him and shedding light on the arbitrary brutality of the time.
