São Paulo is like an oversized maze of concrete, glass façades, cars and, above all, people in all their diversity. While Pedro, alias Babyface, does his stuff as a webcam boy, Isabella next door is learning for a medical exam. The young queers get a visit from Jonata, who has come from Minas Gerais to live out his passion for cruising in the anonymous big city.Like tigers, the three of them prowl the city, discovering hidden places and meeting people who prefer to live out their extravagance in private. Gaudy Variety evenings portray a São Paulo that celebrates its own “golden age” in the midst of dilapidated buildings and hollow promises of salvation.
