The story of a boy, who leaves his village and goes to the city to meet his father, who is looking for work as an internal immigrant. On this journey, The Boy observes the contradictory face of modern Brazil, which could be any country in the age of globalization. The film fascinates with the designs, the colors and the music. It has no dialogues "so as not to soil this diamond with unnecessary things", as the critic of the French L'Express wrote.

Suffering from the lack of the father, a boy leaves his village and discovers a fantastic world dominated by animal-machines and strange beings. An extraordinary animation with many artistic techniques, portraying the issues of the modern world through the eyes of a child.
