Damião is a man who spends his days as the caretaker of a almost completely abandoned shopping mall, a cage of harsh lighting, mirrored surfaces, leaky pipes, and rubber flooring.
Throught the film we learn of Damião's claims of a past of travelling the world with a circus and finding love in Argentina, and of his relationship with his transvestite partner, Nandinha. This 30 minutes 'mockumentary' is an adaptation of the play Damião das Chaves by Pedro Estorninho, who also plays the title character.
The full short will be made available online later, you can watch the trailer for now. The song is Dandy by Carlos Gardel (which, despite what YouTube’s bot police tells me, is very much in the public domain).
