Tetê doesn’t feel accepted either at school or at home. When her unemployed parents must move in with her grandparents to their home in Copacabana, in Rio de Janeiro, the 16-year-old girl must start over at a new school. She will try everything not to be bullied again, and maybe make friends and have a social life.
Adolescence the brazilian way, the humpedy-bumpedy ride of crisscrossing in the coming of age years, to find your place at the soscial ladder, pick and choose hateful or lovable friends, all the hormonal vorts popping up at the time least wanted, combined with arch-stupid parents and other family connections that tries to dig out a route for you in a societal system that noone above 16 years of age pathoms…
well you do all the excercises youve been through yourself sometime, it rolls like a ball in the labyrinth of holes or flaws or whatever, fast shifting settings, too much facial close ups, and absolutely to much verbal noise to be enjoyed by a grumpy old man.
So just another brazillian teenage dramedy, nothing new here, bullying and impertinense is just as universal as everywhere so just a 4 for its flatness and unoriginality.
