Synopsis

With a week to go before the 2018 presidential election, actress and author Maria Ribeiro decides to record and investigate the last days of a divided country. In conversations with close friends and interviews (including vice-presidential candidate Manuela D’Avila and psychoanalyst Maria Rita Kehl), the documentary draws a parallel between the country’s crisis and the end of a marriage.​
