“Fiction… for all those who like what vultures take in, it is really a great film.”

The film follows the increase and tumble of remaining-wing icon Lula da Silva and the impeachment of his successor Rousseff. Their political ups and downs paved the way for Bolsonaro’s 2018 election victory, which finished decades of leftist rule in the place.
