Synopsis
Ricardo Gama lives imprisoned in his own home, the internet being his only access to the outside world. For several days the attorney does not leave his flat, which is located at the Copacabana. On his blog he writes and reports about politics, corruption and criminal activities in Rio de Janeiro. As a result he only barely survived an assassination attempt in 2011 in which he suffered two shots to the head.
A year later, Ricardo is running for the City Council of Rio de Janeiro. He sees these elections not only  as a way into politics, but a path to freedom, also. While Ricardo runs his campaign on the Internet, rival politicians are fighting for every vote on the streets with music and dancers. 
Through this single destiny a dark side of Brazil is depicted, the world public has not known yet.
