When Brazil’s crisis deepened, students protested and occupied hundreds of schools, demanding better public education. The film depicts the Brazilian student movement from the protests of 2013 until the election of the new president, Jair Bolsonaro, in 2018. The documentary is narrated by three high school students, who represent central points with their struggle. The narrators’ jostling for space exposes the movement’s conflicts and complexity.
