This musical documentary is set in a strong political and cultural context, as we accompany the musician Lucas Santtana through his native Brazil, against a tense backdrop caused by the approaching presidential elections that will see Lula and Bolsonaro clash. The musician tells us about his childhood in the city of Salvador de Bahia, the cultural influence of colonization in Brazil and the parallel between these dark times of the country and the current situation under the governance of Bolsonaro. Music will guide us through the story, and Lucas Santtana’s politically committed lyrics will resonate in this election context.
