A 12 year old Brazilian boy narrates the adventures of his father, Antonio, an idealistic dreamer, who, during the 1960s takes his family to Brasilia in order to participate in the construction of the newly inaugurated capital. Moved by the political turmoil of the period and by the reforms promised by former President Joao Goulart, Antonio stumbles into political activism and the unrest of workers. Dreams become nightmares overnight.
