Rinha (Combat)

Synopsis

Cássia lives with her alcoholic father and his roosters. Her routine obeys to a disciplined logic of worry and melancholy. Between driving her father's taxi in the streets of Belo Horizonte and tending their rooster for the cockfights in the backyards of the city, Cássia is on the verge of breaking to find a life of her own without the responsibilities imposed on her which make her feel like she doesn't know whom she is. But to move on she will have to lose the only family she's ever had.
