Increasing homophobic sentiment in their home country has prompted twin brothers from Brazil to flee to Europe. One lives legally in Brussels, the other illegally in Berlin. This film was shot in 2018 during the election in Brazil. In a cross between dreamily casual fiction and disturbing documentary, the brothers reflect on Brazil’s future under the rise of far-right presidential candidate Jair Bolsonaro and on their own future in Europe.
