On March 5, 1986, in a run-down disco on the outskirts of Brasilia, a group of cops used a drug raid as an excuse to severely beat everyone present in the dive; all of those beaten were black. The policemen were heard shouting: 'White out, black in.' Marquim and Sartana, two victims of the event, remember that terrible day; the former lost a leg and the latter remains paralyzed. However, remembrance is not all they want.
Partially following the wishes of his protagonists, Adirley Queirós chooses to register the mysterious everyday life of these characters in the present instead of recreating their past while allowing them to stage a fantasy to exorcize this bygone event. The staging includes time travelling and an imaginary attack against the capital city, Distrito Federal. A potential historic and political documentary becomes a rebellious and therapeutic piece of fiction

Adirley Queiros was a professional footballer from the age of 16 to 25. He then studied film at the Universidade de Brasília. With his documentary A Cidade É Uma So Queirós participated in international film festivals such as World Cinema Amsterdam, Brazilian Hollywood Festival and BAFICI in Argentina.
