Book-loving Marcelo invites us deep inside his life story where non-fiction mingles with fantastical elements, constantly questioning what is real and what is performance. An outrageous, explicit and poignant portrait of a man fully in charge of his desires, frankly laying bare tales of incest, Catholic grandmothers and the contemplation of sending self-made sex tapes to his homophobic father.
