João is a fifty-two year old actor who lives with his seventy-two year old mother, Celina. He spends his time between his work at night as a cross-dresser in small gay bars and the roles he portrays in modest plays, movies and television shows. Tormented and haunted by ghosts from his past, João’s day-to-day life starts to merge with the reality in which he lives and the fiction he is interpreting.
