Luciano Pedro Jr., Jules Elting, Clara Pinheiro, Adelio Lima, Ane Olivia, Tavinho Teixeira and Matheus Nachtergaele star; the synopsis: “A young man’s ability to surreally speak with cars sparks a revolution that could save his community. When his invention inadvertently accelerates the underlying problems, our hero’s quest puts him in a fight for survival with capitalism’s zombies.”
