The Man from the Future
Zero is a brilliant scientist. However, 20 years ago, he was publicly humiliated when he lost Helena, the love of his life. One day, an accidental experiment causes him to travel back in time to 1991. Having taken the opportunity to change history, Zero returns to his own time to find it totally changed.
Back & Forth
Four call center agents embark on a road trip through São Paulo’s south coast together and end up crossing paths with a man who is taking his child to meet his estranged mother along the way.
Clara, a 65-year-old widow and retired music critic, was born into a wealthy and traditional family in Recife, Brazil. She is the last resident of the Aquarius, an original two-story building, built in the 1940s, in the upper-class seaside Boa Viagem Av., Recife. Clara has pledged to only leave her place upon her death and will engage in a cold war of sorts with the company. This tension both disturbs Clara and gives her that edge on her daily routine. It also gets her thinking about her loved ones, her past, and her future.
