There is no doubt that the horrors facing the world right now are creeping into how I am arranging films to tell a story. Sometimes it feels like dystopia has not only begun, but is well underway. I never imagined the extent to which the most bizarre and fringe types of conspiracy theories would join the pandemic in leading this charge toward an uncertain future that is filling so many of us with dread. These films express all of this.

When faced with his brother's terrible fate, João finds a way to escape and cut ties with the cult to which his family belongs. Although haunted by the secret he carries with him and the crisis of faith he faces, João has only one goal: to save his brother and to hide from him the cold reality of the world in which they live.
