    • Synopsis
    • Valmir is a widower with nearly 60 years old, who had worked all his life as a projectionist in a movie theatre. With the bankruptcy of the company, and the closure of the last room, Valmir loses his job and needs to find another one. But at his age and lack of experience, he finds it difficult to be replaced in the labor market and relapses in an alcoholism controlled with great difficulty.
      Still faithful to Rubyana, his late wife, whom he often visits at the cemetery, Valmir avoids the approach of Angela, a neighbor also lonely and willing to come into his life.
      One day, Valmir discovers a vacancy for a projectionist in a porn cinema and, even frightened by the new world that is presented to him, he decides to face the challenge, because he needs to pay his bills. He ends up overcoming prejudices and making many friends among the prostitutes and transvestites who attend the place, for whom he projects classic movies, in the evening, without the knowledge of the owner of the cinema.
      With the new friends Valmir’s life gets more colours and he rediscovers his sexual life, even opening up to a new relationship with Angela.
