The film traces a parallel between life in the period of slavery and the contemporary Brazilian society, focusing on the similarity in the social and economic context of the two periods. Despite being a work of fiction, slavery is shown as is described in historical documents of the time. To draw this parallel between the 19TH century and the current time, the movie asks to what extent the structure of Brazilian society has really changed from the colonial era until today.

The film is a free adaptation of the short story ‘ father against Mother ’, Machado de Assis. The work is interspersed with small Chronicles of Nireu Cavalvanti researcher on slavery in Brazil, and reveals the sufferings and contradictions of a country in permanent crisis of values.
