Quarrels and violence are part of the daily experiences of this life. He is regarded as the boy in the village who has the devil in him, whose pranks always go a touch too far. Only the chance friendship with Portugâ, an older gentleman with a flashy car, gives him support and opens up new paths for him. The film version of the autobiographical novel by José Mauro de Vasconcelos (1920-1984).
