A Brazilian animation film that truly exemplifies the power of imagery and music as a combination that has more than enough to portray a powerful and deep message. It shows an adventurous quest that illustrates the issues of the modern world through the eyes of a child. A cautionary tale of globalization, the film teaches above all the dangers of the massification of the economy, of the mind, and of the soul.
