When Ciccio finds, among the many of his father’s books that line the walls of their house, a troubling letter dated 'December 21, 1931. Berlin', his existential crisis only intensifies. It seems that his father once had a child with another woman, a German son whose fate remains unclear. Ciccio sets out on a mission to locate his lost half-brother, and to win the respect of his father. But as Brazil's military government cracks down on dissent, and rumours of arrests and disappearances spread, while Ciccio has been out looking for his German brother, he finds that he has taken his eye off his immediate family.
