André is a young boy that lives in an industrial neighborhood in Ouro Preto, Minas Gerais. Once a week, his aunt Márcia, a voluntary nurse, visits him and his younger brother to help them with the domestic tasks, while their mother is away.
One day, one of the factory workers, Cristiano, a foreigner with a turbulent background in the neighborhood, suffers an accident at the factory. Márcia gives him first aid right in front of the factory, and asks Andre to go to Cristiano’s house to get his documents and some clothes. When Andre arrives there, he finds by chance a mysterious notebook, which he starts to read.
Andre discovers that Cristiano started writing this notebook for the factory’s theater group, where these workers were asked to write down something about their lives. But Cristiano couldn’t stop writing. As a fairy tail, the film divides itself, and plunges into Cristiano’s life.
