A wave of murders invades Barra de Tijuca, west of Rio de Janeiro. What begins as a morbid curiosity will slowly take over the young people living in the area, including Bia, a teenager in the midst of her sexual awakening.
Barra de Tijuca. A group of teenage girls with the typical insecurities of that age is affected by a wave of attacks and murders of young women in the area. They are Bia, Mariana, Michele, and Renata, and they seem bored with the tedium of bourgeois life, and fascinated with the notion of death, the death of others who could also be them. Just as her short films preannounced, the first film by this young filmmaker from Rio de Janeiro features a great management of audiovisual language, as well as a profound knowledge of genre, and shapes up a complex and liberating film by using resources that range from pop –in her portrait of the girls’ teen universe– to horror, in order to express the psychological effects of these murders on them.
