Hélio is an unemployed security guard, who no longer has a home, or friends, or possessions. Maybe now he only has the reveries of those that although tired and injured can no longer rest. Not even the unemployment allows him to abandon the function that has taken control of his body and gestures. How to film a collective symptom, the one that makes us sick of excessive fear, control, exhaustion, abandonment? Amid the chaos, it’s necessary to produce breaches in ordinary narratives, move toward other people, and recover our disposal for danger.
