The film portrays the period in which national humor had fewer limits (1986-2003). From the decompressing wave released with the end of military censorship to the virtual inexistence of the “politically correct” that the
internet fostered in the 2000s, a new generation of artists like Laerte, Marcelo Tas, Pedro Cardoso, Premê, Cláudio Paiva, Bussunda and others exploded creating new languages for TV, theater, music and graphic humor, revolutionizing and taking pleasure in the
controversial. An important film to think through limits imposed to humor today.
