It's one of the hottest summers in history and Rio de Janeiro is preparing for the Olympics. Young lawyer Ana defends a group of people who might be evicted because of a stadium construction. The temperature is rising and creating a stifling atmosphere. Ana realises that her body reacts to the events in the city in a peculiar way. Resembling the work of Kleber Mendonça Filho, this film relies on powerful visuals, horror fantasy, and Marina Provenzzano's performance in the leading role.
