It’s Father's Day and Isabela hasn’t visited her family for four years. In an attempt to reconnect, she decides to introduce her liberal and free-loving boyfriend Giovani to her conservative parents, but what she did not expect is that back home she would find that her father is involved in one of the biggest corruption scandals ever recorded in Brazil. Faced with a dysfunctional family, Giovani’s presence will be more important than they could ever imagine.
