It is not an ordinary story the one of a young bakery attendant, obsessed with antique papers, who starts to mingle among fine art merchants and collectors and then sees himself in the newspapers’ crime pages. Although in twisted ways, Laéssio highlights the necessity of Brazil to take care of its own History.
