In the confines of an urban jungle, emotionally withdrawn Pedro (newcomer Shico Menegat) is battling the legal consequences of a devastating nightclub attack. His sole connection to the outside world is as “Neon Boy,” an online erotic performer whose neon-paint slathered black-light dances have won him a legion of adoring fans. But when his older sister Luiza (Guega Peixoto) leaves him to take a job in another city and Pedro discovers a fellow camboy has stolen his performing techniques, the shy twentysomething must venture far outside his comfort zone to defend his space as a performer. That’s where he soon discovers a shared connection with outgoing and ambitious Leo (Bruno Fernandes), and an unexpected tenderness in the heart of an unforgiving city in this 2018 Berlinale Teddy- and CICAE Art Cinema Award-winning new film from co-directors Filipe Matzembacher and Marcio Reolon.
