The Joy (A alegria)
A tale about youth and courage this film tells the story of Luiza, 16 years old, who is just tired of hearing about the end of the world. One Christmas eve, her cousin João is shot in a poor neighborhood of Rio de Janeiro city, and disappears in the middle of the night. Some weeks after that, while Luiza is alone in her apartment, the girl will find a mysterious guest waiting for her in the living room: João, as a ghost, asking her to be hidden there.
