The summer is coming and Elias has been dreaming of the sea a lot. In the textile factory where he works, his responsibilities increase as the holiday season approaches. After one more night working overtime, Elias and the workers decide to go out for some beer. That is when new encounters and desires open his horizons.
With one of the best long takes of the year in a scene that perfectly summarises the philosophy of Corpo Elétrico: knowledge of the other is the first step to acceptance of it. A generational portrait full of sensuality and colour that will move us from the very start.
