The song tells the love story between two different young men, who define themselves by complementing each other. The words reflect the visual and social landscape of Brasilia in the 1980sThis environment was also a source of inspiration for the director. Rene Sampaio, who also directed another movie from the Urban Legion universe, Western Kapoklo, for 2013.
There is also a lot of my personal history of being from Brasilia. In 1986 I was there. I was a little younger than Eduardo, so I think we made an interesting mix, which brings a lot of time, social and political context. Brazil’s exit from dictatorship and entry into democracy. As this debate is so relevant today, it has also entered film, as well as individual liberties.

The film was shot in 2018, the year of the presidential election, but its premiere was postponed due to the pandemic, and finally, it has a date for its release on the big screen: January 20 2022, in a new election year.
For Alice Braga, the movie shows that People can fight with love for their convictions.
I really hope he will draw love from people. We live, in the world and in Brazil, a lot of hatred, a lot of division, aggression, and celebration of death. I think we should fight with love. And I really hope the movie brings that message, about respecting differences, growing, and being inspired by love. And I think that’s a beautiful message that the movie brings.
– Alice Braga
