Angela (Luiza Mariani) shares the apartment with Léo and has a 6 year old boy, who is practically raised by their maid, who hardly gets paid. Depressive, she spends most of the day in bed, leaving the house at night in search of fun on decadent clubs. On a given night, Léo decides to spend the little money they have and, by chance, finds Angela, at the mercy of Sybelle (Milhem Cortaz), a transvestite with connections on the underground. She introduces him to Marcin (Caroline Abras), who dresses as a man but has woman grimaces. Soon, they become friends and decide to drink, along with Wilson (João Miguel), a taxi driver who believes to be in need of a psychiatrist. Gradually, an awkward yet strong emotional bond emerges among them, especially increased when they decide to play a highly rewarding, bu dangerous confidence game.
