What makes a person what he is? Caio (22) is a petty criminal who has got on the wrong path. But now Cajo wants to make a change, this time when he gets out of jail everything will be different. With his adoptive parents he sets out to start a new life. Euphoricaly, he looks for a home together with his pregnant girlfriend Rijelda. But soon his past catches up with him: Cajo pretends to be someone he is not. He invents characters, feigns being a car dealer, a professional football player or a talent scout and gets lost in his performances. Cajo must return to jail. The filmmakers are very close to him and mix the 2 levels: Cajo’s past and his present in which he is his own commentator.
