Best known in Brazil for her romantic comedies, Julia Rezende shifts gears in her fifth feature film with this dark Coen Brothers-like drama about four friends -Vladimir, his wife Clívia, Regina and Primo- who concoct an outrageous plan to get out of their financial doldrums: to kidnap Regina’s former boss. The only problem? They lack experience so they resort to recruiting a couple of hoodlums as mentors. As the plan moves forward so do their frustrations, ambitions and fears.

Conhecida no Brasil por suas comédias românticas, Julia Rezende muda de gênero na sua quinta longa-metragem com este drama, que faz lembrar um filme dos irmãos Coen, sobre quatro amigos – Vladimir, sua esposa Clivia, Regina e Primo – que bolam um plano exorbitante para escapar dos seus problemas financeiros: Sequestrar o ex-patrão de Regina. O único problema? Eles não têm a menor experiência, por isso recrutam um casal de bandidos como mentores. À medida que o plano avança, eles revelam suas frustrações, ambições e medos.
