Today, at his 75, he remembers that far 1969 that change completely in a few seconds his life. Exiled in Chile and then in Holland during the dictatorship years, he returns to Brazil after the amnesty in 1979. The film is a portray of the country and of a man that was destined to remain invisible but that strengthen his entire life – sacrificing his family and his possessions – for an ideal of democracy and social justice.
