After being denounced as an outcast in school and frightened away from home by his mother's developing schizophrenia, there is no other way out for Johannes but to start improving his life by reforming himself.
Beautiful, sensitive, distressing. The very first feature-length film of José Pedro Goulart is a masterpiece of Brazilian cinema. Cinematography, edition, acting, screenplay, everything is perfect and above the ordinary. The images and camera angles captured for this film are amazingly innovative and audacious. The alternation between reality and his mind also worth being mentioned. The movie subject may be described as the difficulties and challenges faced by a boy with psychological problems and very dysfunctional parents. He finds in driving his father's car the path to freedom he does not have in his life. Though, the hardest challenge will come, and he lacks maturity to deal with. The only person who may make he goes on is himself.
