Brazil is said to be a sleeping giant waking up to become one of the world leaders. Our film will tell the country's history through the eyes of two families over several generations. In one of the families, the slaves of before became domestic workers, and the former domestics are now employees, with fixed hours and living in their own homes, where they raise their own children rather than those of their bosses. They have reached the middle class. The other family descends from coffee barons and army generals. It is still a wealthy family, but yesterday's fortune was lost. Its members have witnessed many historical events. These two families will embody the evolutions of Brazil since the twenties until today. Our goal is to intersect the family's' sagas and the nation's history with a broad range of photo and film archives, both public and private. We will complete this with a more global contextualization of the general history of the country.
