A white, male director, and a black, female co-director, joint efforts with an all African American crewto understand racism in Brazil. Many times presented as a “mixed” and racism-free country, Brazil was, as a fact the last country in the world to abolish slave labor, and its effects are very well rooted in family relations, in workplace environments, and is part of the subjectivity of black and white Brazilians. The heritage of slavery continues to be present, yet today. The backbone of this documentary is formed by the stories of nine common people, with different shades of black skin, who present their daily lives and share situations involving racism, from veiled moments to the most explicit.
