Summer arrives and Elias, a young assistant at a busy garment factory in Sao Paulo, is dreaming of carefree parties and hot hook-ups. Outside of the factory’s long hours, Elias becomes increasingly interested in connecting with work colleagues, including a casual and tender fling with a flirty co-worker. Despite upper management warning him not to fraternize with the ‘common’ floor workers, he finds a new joy in the acceptance and openness of his fellow young working class friends. When his much older and wealthy ex-boyfriend re-enters his life, Elias endeavours to bring the separate parts of his life together for the biggest party of the summer.
