    • Laundry area. Rossi, 17, kisses Cassio, a friend of his brother Cauê, passionately. Bathroom. Rossi is masturbating and is surprised by his mother Eunice. Living room of an apartment. A family gathers around the television. It is very hot, but the windows are closed. Eunice, 45, is standing in front of the closed window, enjoying the subtle breeze that comes through a crack. Cauã, 22, is alone on the couch and casually plays with fan with his feet. Borges, 50, watches television in his chair. Rossi, 19, enters the room and sits on the floor. When he does that, he drops the fan on the ground, breaking it. Cauã scolds him and goes to the window, opening it with hardly, leaving the deafening noise of Minhocão invade the room. Borges looks at Rossi with disapproval and asks Eunice to increase the TV sound. Eunice doesn't hear him asking, and Borges, angrily, leaves the room. Cauã also leaves, following his father. Rossi goes to the window. Eunice sits on the couch and stands still.
      This is the routine of this staggered family where Eunice and Rossi can't find their place, not even close to each other. To bear this hard everyday, they take refuge in daydreams, each on their own.
      Daydreamer is the chronicle of a weekend where Rossi will find, in the street, characters that, like him, are mismatched. The street is configured as the stage of Rossi's sexual and affective initiation. On this journey, Rossi experiences the disaffection and affection and, thereafter, may react to his brother's threats and approaches his mother's of truth.
