Synopsis

Ênio, nearly 15, stopped believing in ghosts a long time ago. He’s having to deal with a lot at home, his mother who believes in them, and his brute father who at home is almost a ghost. His family life is falling apart, whilst his sister’s friends bully and laugh at him at school. After being asked by his mother to spy on his father at work, he becomes disillusioned with his sense of self. One night he decides to steal his father’s car, and goes in pursuit of a prostitute whose number he found. Over the course of one fateful night Ênio goes on an adventure that will show everyone just how real ghosts can be in this tour-de-force debut about the loss of innocence and growing up.
