    • Without a father at home, Serginho has become the man of the house, forced to leave school to earn a living and take care of his mother and younger brother. No longer a boy, not yet a man, he begins to find himself when two friendships come into his life; one with a professor who brings affection he never expected and one with a circus performer who offers him a chance to find a new family. Absence" won the Best Actor Prize (for Matheus Fagundes) and the Special Jury Prize at the Rio International Film Festival.
