The moving story of João, a man who while on the road, finds a way to forget the heartache of his past. By chance or luck, he comes across a boy looking for the father he never met. That encounter leads to a beautiful relationship that will shake the delicate balance built by João to deal with his ghosts. Inspiration by successful songs by Roberto Carlos.

Two Brazilian artists, two icons of popular music. Two opposite personalities that are part of the same story, marked by disagreements between father and son who have spent their lives trying to understand each other. Luiz Gonzaga and Gonzaguinha, emotion overflows into musical notes.
