A story about four brothers from a poor family who need to fight to follow their dreams.

Four poverty-stricken half brothers with the same mother, Cleuza but different fathers, who live in a suburban neighborhood in the periphery of São Paulo and have to fight to follow their dreams. Dario, seeks the opportunity of a better life with his soccer skills; Dênis survives as a motorcycle courier; Dinho works in a filling station and helps at the local church and Reginaldo, although gifted as a soccer player dreams of becoming a bus driver. Cleuza, pregnant with her fifth child, works as a cleaner for a woman in a middle class area of São Paulo.

The film stars Sandra Corveloni, who won the Best Actress Award at the 2008 Cannes Film Festival for her role, which was her first in a full-length motion picture.
