Andre is 20 years old and has not finished high school. He is a photocopier operator at Gomide Stationer's a shop that sells stationery and magazines, in a lower middle class neighbourhood in Porto Alegre. He lives with his mother. He likes drawing and he like Silvia. Andre desperately need 38 Reais.

Silvia is also 20. She goes to night classes and during the day works in a shop that sells women's clothes. She lives with her father, enjoys reading and is not that crazy about figs. Silvia has a date at Rio that cannot miss. Marines works at the shop with Andre. She dates but not that often, a German guy who lives in Holland. Marines looks really good in clothes she cannot afford.

Andre needs money to buy a chenille dressing gown and to save Silvia's life. Andre makes many plans to get money. And they all work out.... almost.
